Presented By The Graduating Classes Of 


The University of 
Maryland 

School of Medicine 
and 

School of Nursing 


Baltimore, Maryland 

1950 



When the republic was but eighteen years of age and Thomas Jefferson 
was yet President the University of Maryland School of Medicine had its 
beginnings in a law enacted by the State Legislature. The population of 
Baltimore was less than thirty thousand, and there were but four other 
medical schools in existence in this country. Seven students enrolled for 
the first session and classes were held in various rented and private buildings. 
Because of the inadequacy of these structures and active public resistance 
to attempts at anatomical dissection and demonstration, the need for a 
permanent location soon became acute. 

A lottery was authorized by the legislature and bond was supplied by 
faculty members and public spirited citizens. Plans were drawn up by R. 
Carey Long, an eminent architect of the times, and construction of the 
present Pantheonesque edifice was begun in 1811 with the Revolutionary 
hero. Col. John Eager Howard, laying the cornerstone. 

The building was occupied in 1812-1813 and represents today the 
oldest building in the United States from which the degree Doctor of Medi- 
cine has been granted annually since its inception. It stands today, a monu- 
ment to its sons who have devoted their lives to the teaching and practice 
of medicine, and an inspiration to each new generation of graduates. Re- 
plete with legend and steeped in tradition, in its solid permanency it bids 
well to endure for centuries. 



The close of this four year period 
of study will signal the division of a 
closely knit class into separate careers 
of medical practice, in many cases 
so far away that future reunion will 
be improbable, if not impossible. 
Memories of malodorous cadavers, 
known quite intimately to be sure; 
memories of mercilous exams; mem- 
ories of those pseudo-formal dances 
and frankly informal beer parties; 
memories of professors whose lives 
are dedicated to the teaching of medi- 
cine; these would perhaps fade as 
time all too hastily consumes us, if 
it were not for a text of this sort to 
bring back the life we knew as as- 
pirants to the degree Doctor of Medi- 
cine. 

Assuming literary license, we hav^ 
treated with flippancy personalities, 
specialties, and ideals. Let it be un- 
derstood without question that our de- 
votion and respect for our confreres, 
teachers, and profession is beyond re- 
proach.

OFFICE OF THE DEAN 


Out of the shadows of war and in the wake of victory came a 
freshman class composed chiefly of those who had done their part 
toward winning World War II# Largely the class was made up of 
mature men and women, both veterans and non-veterans# 

From the start this class of 1950 has given me the impres- 
sion of stability, loyalty to its school, cooperation with the 
administration, and a humane interest in the welfare of its 
schoolmates# In addition, it has manifested an awareness of the 
responsibilities of its profession to society through its 
seriousness and degree of accomplishment# 

To these men and women of 1950 I extend ny sincere good 
wishes for their happiness and feel safe in predicting their 
success as physicians#

Entomology (bugs to the rest of us) has always fascinated Andy, who 
is a native Baltimorean, and he still claims it as his favorite hobby. He 
left the city on an Army conducted excursion tour in May of '43 and re- 
turned in '45 after taking some pre-medical training at The Citadel. In 
1946 he acquired an A.B. from The Johns Hopkins University. Past sum- 
mers have been spent at Seton Institute and West Baltimore General Hos- 
pital. Andy will intern at Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore and then 
go into general practice with the idea of later specializing in pediatrics 
or internal medicine. 



September 10, 1919 marked the birth of a man whose desire to become 
o streetcar conductor has been suppressed (except on occasion) by on even 
greater desire to assume o place in medicine. He attended John Carroll 
University, Wagner College and the University of Buffalo for his pre- 
med training. John served in the Army Medical Department for 5 years 
os o medical technician. On June 4, 1945 in Neosho, Missouri, he and 
Jeon Agnes Moickle joined hands and the blend has produced John Moickle, 
3, and Martha Kay, 1. John has spent his summers working in state parks 
and dabbling at his hobbies of wood working and hunting. He will intern 
at Norfolk, Virginia with the U.S. Public Health Service.

Charlie was chipped off the "neurogenic bloc" on May 30, 1922 in 
Baltimore, Maryland. He attended both Princeton and Loyola College 
of Baltimore, receiving a B.S. from the latter in 1944. From then until 
August 30, 1946 he was a combatless, combat correspondent for the U.S. 
Marines. Further favoring his literary bent his first vacation was spent 
as editor of a New Jersey weekly. Subsequent vacations were occupied 
with an OB externship at Baltimore City Hospitals and as an extern in the 
University Hospital Accident Room, and a substitute intern also at the 
University, where after graduation he will serve his internship. 



On Ocfober 10, 1922, in Baltimore, Mary first opened her wide eyes 
and emitted a scream of protest. A physician's daughter, her future was 
from the start predestined to be that of the stethescope and percussion ham- 
mer. She took her pre-med at the College of Notre Dame, and in 1943 was 
awarded the B.A. degree. Mary joined our class in the third year following 
a years leave of absence during which she worked in the laboratory of the 
Rosewood Training School. She has returned there each summer to dabble 
in porphyria research. The Christmas Vacation of 1949 will long be 
remembered by Mary, for that too short vacation was consumed by a much 
too long wedding ceremony and a much too short honeymoon, spent with 
George Ward Barstow, a student of agriculture at College Park. Mary will 
intern at Mercy Hospital here in Baltimore. 



^0€im€um 

An outspoken individualist from Rahway, New Jersey, Bill attended 
Rutgers University and the University of Maryland before joining the class. 
On June 2, 1945 in Cambridge, Maryland he married Mary Howard Sim- 
mons, and to odd some zest to life there are Mary Howard, 2, and Wilbur 
Nelson, Jr. In his summers. Bill and his crew cut have pushed ice cream 
sales for Good Humors, and catheters for the University Hospital. A Delta 
Upsilon, he will intern at University Hospitol and whenever finding time 
and winds favorable, will continue to indulge his passion for sailing in local 
waters; or if the breezes foil, he will pursue his well known nimrodic 
tendencies. 







Jay was born on November 16, 1927, a noisy, uninhibited Id in pixil- 
loted Washington, D.C. Perhaps his stork hod o Freudian bent, at any rote 
by the time he had completed his pre-med studies at the University of 
Pennsylvania, Jay hod decided he wanted to unsnarl superegos. His varied 
summer activities included the role of camp doctor to a bunch of young 
hellions bent on self destruction. Wearing a quite conventional gleam in 
his eye. Jay married Lynne G. Goldsweig on June 5, 1949. Treasurer and 
Senator of Phi Delto Epsilon, he will intern at Gollinger Municipal Hospital 
in Washington, D.C.; and after the necessary additional troining Jay will 
prod about amid Ids, Egos, Superegos, and income tox forms in his psychia- 
tric office.

"Bleek" arrived in Los Angeles, California on June 2, 1926, sons 
sport coot or dork glosses, but very suitobly dressed for the beach. This 
explains, no doubt, why he attended U.C.L.A., become o summertime life- 
guard, and, is frankly mod about those west coost beoches: swimming, 
borrocudos, borecuties et ol. A member of Nu Sigmo Nu ond Alpha Omego 
Alpha, "Bleek" did his externship stint at Sonto Monica Hospitol, Colif. 
When he returns to the west coast and Los Angeles County Hospital for his 
internship he will nonetheless continue to have local ties because Dr. Betty 
Storm from Frederick Md. will help him pack his sport coots and moke 
his morning coffee after June 1950, as ''Betty Storm Bleecker, M.D." 



^%€utci^ 


On January 14, 1925, Frank looked his ma's obstretician squarely 
in the eye as he shouldered his way into the center of things in Luke, Md. 
Always on the look out he served as an Army Ground Forces' Rador 
Operator in 1943 and 1944. After attending Cornell University in 1944 
Fronk went on to complete his pre-med at the University of Marylond. 
Both a Sigma Alpha Epsilon and a Nu Sigma Nu, Frank kept busy sum- 
mers looking things over as an extern at the Potomac Valley Hospital in 
Keyser, West Virginia in '46 and '48 and the Pennisula General Hospital, 
Salisbury, Maryland in '49. Always one to know his own mind Fronk 
intends, after an internship at the University Hospital to do general practice, 
or surgery, or internol medicine, although his special interest in psychiatry.

"Brad" was just a little "tacker" when he checked into Washington, 
D.C. on August 10, 1921. Nailing down a B.S. at the University of Mary- 
land, Brad then took time out for three years in the Navy — back when they 
sailed their ships on water — before joining the gang in 1946. Vice Presi- 
dent and House Manager of the Nu Sigma Nu, Brad was sharp as a tack 
when he married artistic, honey-haired Nancy June Ferneyhough August 13, 
1949 in Riverdale, Maryland where he now "hangs his hat". A Casualty 
Hospital, Washington, D.C., extern last summer. Brad will intern at the 
University Hospital and then true to his beginning will do a general practice 
in Washington, D.C.

Since July 16, 1924 Joe has made this monumental city his home 
town. He attended St. Briget's School, Loyola High School, and graduated 
from Loyola College with a B.S. degree. A past president of Nu Sigma 
Nu, Joe was an Alpha Sigma Nu at Loyola and a Phi Delta Theta at 
College Park. An outdoor man, he enjoys hunting and fishing and is of 
course properly appreciative of Chesapeake Bay beauties. Joe spent last 
summer as a junior intern at University Hospital and will return this year. 
The moral to this story is, if one is born here, the son of a physician in prac- 
tice here, if one were raised here, attended school here and interned here, one 
might just as well practise here: which Joe has every intention of doing. 


"Burk" first voiced his interest in things July 20, 1926, at Cumber- 
land, Maryland. While garnering a B.S. at St. Francis Callege, Loretto, 
Pennsylvania and a smattering of the U.S. Pharmacopeo at the University of 
Maryland School of Pharmocy, Burk developed a yen for basketball, 
football, fishing, and aquatic sports in which he hos found little time to 
indulge these last four years. A member af Nu Sigma Nu while in medical 
school, Fred served as Historian of that fraternity in 1948 - 1949. His 
summers recently past have been occupied with junior internships at Cas- 
ualty Hospital Washington, D.C. and the Relay Sanitarium with an occas- 
sional fling at Issac-Waltonish relaxation along the local streams. An eligi- 
ble bachelor as we go to press, Burk hopes, following an internship at Mercy 
Hospital in Pittsburgh, to study surgery and then head for Cumberlond, 
which he still calls home. 



Born a Baltimorean on May 14, 1923, Guy completed his premed 
studies at Springfield College, Gettysburg College, and the University of 
Maryland. After serving as an Armed Forces Radio Announcer for the 
Navy, Guy married Alice K. Graybill on September 15, 1945. Mrs. 
Chelton is an M.D. also, but the rumor that Guy uses his wife's notes is a 
foul canard! He has proven his scholastic ability beyond a shadow of a 
doubt both by being selected for Alpha Omega Alpha membership and by 
being awarded the Fredrica Gehrmann Scholarship in the junior year and 
the Linthicum Scholarship in the senior year. Guy is one of those rare 
fellows who while consistantly ranking first scholastically also rates as a 
"real guy" with his confreres. He is a Nu Sigma Nu and is vice-president 
of the Senior Class. After interning at the U.S. Marine Hospital, Balti- 
more, Guy intends to specialize in internal medicine. 


A native Baltimorean as of October 17, 1925, Jerry received his A.B. 
degree from The Johns Hopkins University before coming to med school. 
Far from being a dull grind, this genial aspiront to a career in internal 
medicine takes time to cultivate outside interests. He is marshall for 
Phi Sigma Delta and is particularly interested in radio construction and 
design. During the past two summers he has, for some reason best known to 
himself, seen fit to work in hospitals. In 1948 he held the prestige-ridden 
office of clinical clerk in our own medical dispensory. Fired with success, 
he returned to new conquests as a junior intern at West Baltimore General 
Hospital in 1949. All this should make him a most welcome intern ot 
Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, this year. 



Tom the frenetic Tarheel was born chanting Carolina football cheers on 
August 2, 1926, in Granite Falls, North Carolina. This neonatal laison 
was further cemented when in '46 the University granted our poem-writing 
lad an A.B. degree. These past four years were spent in an exhaustive 
study of Baltimore nursing pulchritude. It is widely rumored that it was 
the frantic clicking of Tom's incisors while engaged in this latter research 
that cost him one set of upper teeth during his sophomore year. Tom him- 
self spikes this succinctly, "I was merely teething on o steering wheel!" 
Having completed his local investigations and a junior internship at St. 
Joseph's Hospital, Tom will move to the University of Texas Medical 
Branch Hospital in Galveston for his internship. This Phi Chi intends 
eventually to return to his beloved Carolina and raise some little Toms.

The din of political machinery was eclipsed on March 1923 
when Joseph R. Cowen was born in the nation's capital. His education at 
the University of Chicago interrupted by a tour of duty in the Army in 
1943, Joe returned to his premedical studies at The Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity, where he finished in 1946. A junior internship at French Hospital 
New York, and some advanced studies in the Graduate School of Columbia 
University account for his summers. He is treasurer and historian of 
Phi Delta Epsilon ond on the honor roll of the National Board. After 
an internship at Wayne County General Hospital and Infirmary in Eloise, 
Michigan, he expects to moke his mark in neuro-psychiatry.

On December 18, 1917, when Bill began life in Charleston, W. Va. his 
hair was not yet generously splashed with gray and his "pants'' were habitual- 
ly rumpled; a far cry from the self controlled, impeccable product of 
Virginia Military Institute we all know. Bill spent five years in the Army, 
a good part of it in the dismal surroundings of the P.W. camps maintained 
by "Aryan hospitality" for reluctant allied "tourists". Satiated with 
things German and military. Bill, trading the "frying pan for the fire" 
plunged into the comfort ridden, luxurious liesurly life of a medical 
student along with the rest of us in 1946. A Phi Chi, he has spent his 
summers externing and after completing an internship at Union Memorial 
Hospital, Baltimore Bill expects to lend his precise habits to the practice 
of surgery. 




On February 11, 1926 heavy lidded Lenny entered Raleigh, North 
Carolina in a relaxed state from which he's never recovered. He earned 
his A.B. at the University of North Carolina with a Chemistry major. 
Scribe of Phi Delta Epsilon in 48-49 and Consul in 49-50, Len spent a 
summer externing at Elizabeth Buxton Hospital, Newport News, Virginia 
followed by a Smoky Mountain "Escapade". This easy going lad who has 
been known to blink but never to startle intends to intern.at Sinai Hospital 
Baltimore enroute to his favorite, un-named specialty.

Maybe there is more to the genetic theory than we think, for Miriam 
Abbott was born to Dr. and Dr. Shamer on January 26, 1925, and is naw 
in a similar position herself, having married the classmate on the next page 
on June 28, 1948. A tight team, the Dalys have together done everything 
from honeymooning to selling Christmas trees to interning at West Baltimore 
General Hospital. Miriam graduated from Goucher with an A.B. and has 
been class secretary during the Freshman and Sophomore years. Vivacious, 
whether perched on a lab stool or a piano bench, she has summered taking 
census for the Baltimore City Health Department and working with the Fed- 
eral Bureau of Supply. After an internship at West Baltimore General 
Hospital she would like to do some general practice and raise somewhat 
less than a Daily Dazen. 



^a^iolcC ^cumcHCc 

Born July T, 1924 in Elkhart, Indiana, Hoi now makes his home 
in Silver Spring, Maryland. He took his pre-med at the University of 
Moryland and spent an emphatic 2 years, 8 months, and 17 days in the 
Navy Medical Corps. In June of 1948 he underwent the double trauma of 
State Board examinations and a church ceremony at which he and MiriamAb- 
bott Shamer were married. Not one to succomb easily, he spent the re- 
mainder of the summer as a medical technician at Bolling Field. At West 
Baltimore General Hospital for a junior internship, he will return there 
for his senior internship and thereafter do G.P. or internal medicine. 



Ti/eed 

Born in Denver, Colorado, August 9, 1924, "E.O." went "south" to 
pick up an A.B. from Randolph Macon Women's College and a "Shugary" 
accent. Fully renouncing the North's frigid charms she currently calls 
Coral Gables, Florida, home base. However, to completely confuse the 
issue "E.O." married Larry Demarest from up-state New York, a confirmed 
ice and snowman during the summer of 1947 in Coral Gables. They split 
their honeymoon "North and South". Besides darning Larry's socks "E.O." 
has been busy as a lab-technician at Maryland General Hospital and an 
extern at West Baltimore General Hospital, After an internship at the 
University Hospital Mrs. "D." intends to study pediatrics and psychiatry 
from the hospital view point before taking time out to raise a family — and 
then return to active practice. 


On June 18, 1923 there was a flurry of excitement in the Demarest 
home in South Orange, New Jersey which turned out to be Lorry. In 1945 
he graduated from Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine, where he was o 
Zeto Psi, with o B.S. degree. Commanding LCS 95 under Navy Auspices, 
Lorry hit the Philippine and Okinawan beaches while the atmospheric lead 
titre was slightly high and then went on to do occupation duty in Japan. 
At the end of the freshman year he and Elinor C. Weed decided to combine 
their libraries with benifit of clergy. A junior intern at Church Home and 
Hospital in '48 and '49, Larry will intern at the Methodist Hospital in 
Brooklyn, New York and then do general practice.

On September 7, 1920, Nick arrived in the usual unencumbered fashion 
in Lyndora, Pa. About the time Nick graduated from the University of 
Pittsburg, fashions were rapidly changing, and before you could say, "I 
don't like Khaki", he was working for his Uncle Sugar in the Alaskan 
Territory. Enamored with the local flora and fauna Nick took his discharge 
then for a while taught mathematics before marrying a local flora of the 
fauna, Olean Wells, May 17, 1946. Last summer Nick worked on a 
research problem for the U.S. Public Health Service and this year he will 
head northwest again for an internship at The Good Samaritan Hospital of 
Portland, Oregon and as an Internist.

"Fredmunds" first crocked his knuckles in Charleston, W. Vo., January 
30, 1920. Horning his B.S. at Hampden Sydney, Fred was further broaden- 
ed, premedically, by thirty-eight months of Army duty that, if nothing else, 
was fantastically varied — “They sent me everywhere but bombadier's 
school!". This mountoin boy's chief extracurricular fun derives from rat- 
tling a “bones" occomponiment to mournful off-beat hillbilly cacophonies, 
though he owns to “liking jug-music and symphonies too". After on intern- 
ship at Union Memorial Hospitol, Baltimore, “Fredmunds" intends to prac- 
tice in Charleston, W. Vo.

On June 4, 1921, the Greenstein family was delighted with the birth 
of a son, George H., who loter attended The Johns Hopkins University 
from which he extracted an A.B. degree in 1941. George volunteered in the 
Army, and during his four yeor tour of duty served as on armored infantry 
unit commander with the 4th Armored Division in the ETO, ond later as 
P. W. Stockade Commander. The Major was decorated with the Purple 
Heart, Bronze Star, and Combat Infantryman Badge. Home from the wars, 
George returned to Baltimore and on August 11, 1946 morried Vera Ber- 
kowitz. Mechanically minded George hos revolutionized the design of 
ophtholmoscopic cases. George will intern at Sinai Hospitol in Baltimore.

As omen of the sophisticofed "smoothie" he was to become, "Horn" 
on March 13, 1918 protested in well modulated tones his precipituous 
debut into the barbaric atmosphere, that in Baltimore passes for early 
spring. Twenty-two springs later, better protected from the weather, "Lon" 
accepted his A. B. from Loyola of Baltimore with unshaken aplomb. "Horn" 
charted his way through World War II os o U.S. Air Force Navigator 
from March of 1942 till May 1946 when he entered the inactive Air Force 
Reserve os Captain. A member of Alpha Omega Alpha, Horn divides his 
hobby time between gardening and golf, saving for inclement weather his 
proclivity for social investigation which he, by preference, conducts from 
behind the protective coloration of the good brown brew in the softly reflect- 
ed glare of local television screens. They'll be "calling Dr. Homberry" 
at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore for the next twelve months.

Ken was born February 21, 1917 in Trenton, New Jersey. He spent 
several years in laboratory work in development production, and research 
in pharmaceuticals, and graduated from Upsala College in East Orange, 
New Jersey with a B.S. degree in chemistry. For many years Ken has been 
interested in astronomy and has ground and polished his own optics and 
built several reflecting telescopes of observatory size. On November 11, 
he was married to Adriana Marie Mol. They have two children, Cloudia 
Lorraine, 4, Kenneth Robert, 214, and they expect another addition to the 
family at graduation time. Ken served in the U.S. Army for 40 months. 
He expects to intern in Mountainside Hospital in Montclair, New Jersey.

Way back in 1914, October 13 to be exact, Phil was born in South 
Bend, Indiana. At the University of Michigan he studied chemistry, was 
made a life member of Scabbard and Blade, and graduated with a B.S. 
During his five and a half years in the Army, Phil was operations officer 
of the 96th Chemical while in the E.T.O., and stateside was a training 
instructor, leaving the service as a Lt. Colonel. In Aberdeen, Maryland on 
April 6, 1942, he and Marguerite Longley were married. They now are 
the proud tenants of a farm in Long Bar Harbor, Abingdon, Maryland where 
Phil mothers a meticulously kept vegetable patch. He summers on active 
duty in the Army at Edgewood Arsenal. In 1950 he will join the house 
staff at Mercy Hospital. Phil aspires to get a comfortable practice under 
way before arterial sclerosis levels his vigorous 6'5". 


Born February 3, 1926 at- Orrville, Ohio, Gracie currently calls Mos- 
sillon, Ohio home. While Groce claims outdoor sports as her first love, 
her avid appetite for classical music lends cultural balance to our "beer 
and skittles" society, and she has been known to lay aside a Gray's Anatomy 
in favor of an evening of cymbal croshing and arias at the Lyric. Tout 
ensemble, a well rounded girl, Gracie got her A.B. from the College of 
Wooster, Ohio. A junior intern at Woman's Hospital, Baltimore the past 
two summers, our graceful Buckeye intends to intern at Mercy Hospital, 
Canton, Ohio. Her studies completed, she will return to Massillon and 
its 26,644 football fans to do a general practice of medicine. 


Good notured, gray thatched Irvin Gorman (Pete to us) made his 
appearance in Oxford, Maryland on August 27, 1915. He attended St. 
John's College, Maryland, and after completing his hundred great books, 
received a B.A. degree in 1939. After kicking around the E.T.O. in the 
Army Engineers, he was discharged on November 30, 1945, after 3 years 
service. Liking beer and music, Pete spent his earlier summers in a bucolic 
retreat on the Eastern Shore. More recently he junior interned at Easton 
Memorial Hospital and Volunteers of America Hospital in Baltimore. 
Pete is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha. He will cross the street next 
year to join the house staff at University Hospital and then do general prac- 
tice in a small community.

"Ginny" first experienced the joy of vocal expression September 2, 
1918 in Boonsboro, Maryland, which she still colls home. Working her 
way through the University of Maryland, she was graduated a B.S. as well 
as an accomplished baby sitter in 1940, and then went on to do graduate 
work at both The Johns Hopkins University and Smith College. During the 
late war Ginny did bacteriological research at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. 
An externship at Spring Grove Hospital this summer past was in line with 
her ambitions to preside over a Freudian, couch-lined, first aid station for 
sprained, fractured, and otherwise shopworn libidos and superegos. She 
will intern at University Hospital.

Harrief arrived in North Bergen, New Jersey on November 24, 1923 
in on abbreviated ''bikini" and a lengthy bawl. More completely but cer- 
tainly not as fetchingly clad, she accepted her B.A. from Wells College in 
Aurora, New York. Eschewing the local Beauty Battle near by in New 
Jersey, Harriet got into the "big tussel" via the WAVEs and after two 
years of cajoling kilocycles into their ordained channels, left the service 
a Lt. j.g. For the past two summers she has externed at Beebe Hospital, 
Lewis, Delaware. Harriet has a way, even with children, and it's a safe 
bet that sooner or later her natural talents will lead her to at least a 
limited pediatric practice. Harriet, the "doctor most likely to be whistled 
at", will be elevating pulses at Baltimore City Hospitals during her intern- 
ship. 


This 29 year old, well nourished, white mole, sleeping comfortably 
in class was born on June 23, 1920 in Baltimore. Johnnie stuck around 
home and attended Loyola College, from whence he graduated with a 
B.S. degree. A pipe smoker, he enjoys writing fiction, and who knows — 
maybe the class of '50 has another Oliver Wendell Holmes in its midst. 
On November 15, 1942 he married Mildred Goski in Baltimore's St. 
Patrick's Cathedral, and they have three deductible items. Jack Stephen, 6, 
Jo Ann Marie, 3 and Micheal Adrian, 5 months. Johnnie left the Marine 
Corps in 1946 after four years as a communications officer. He intends 
to find a town small enough for meditation and do general practice, after 
an internship at West Baltimore Hospital. 





Maxwell first kicked up a flurry of excitement in the Ibsen household 
on January 12, 1917 in Glen Lyon, Pennsylvania. Since then he has gather- 
ed an A.B. from The Johns Hopkins University, an M.A. from the University 
of Pennsylvania, and a D.Sc. from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy 
and Science. He enlisted in the Army early in 1942, and after graduating 
from OCS, served with the 93rd General Hospital in the ETO. After this 
tour of overseas duty he returned as a clinical pathologist at Oak Ridge, 
Tennessee. On December 22, 1946 he and Helen Ruth Brown were married 
and they now have a son, Peter Michael, 1. Max held a junior internship 
at Mercy Hospital and will intern at Santa Clara County Hospital, San 
Jose, California.

Thirty years ago in Reno when it was more of a frontier town, Roy 
David Jensen was born on August 20, and he still colls Reno home. He 
attended the University of Nevada and graduated o B.S. in 1941. Three 
years in the infontry, Roy saw combat service on New Guinea, Moluccas, 
and the Philippines before returning to the outdoor life he loves in the 
Sierra Nevada Mountains. Reversing the usual Reno procedure, he and 
Gloria Ann Troynor were married August 18, 1946, and there is now a 
Roy David, Jr. 1 yeor old. A junior internship at Washoe Medical Center 
in his home town occupied lost summer, and next year Franklin Hospital 
in San Francisco will get his services. Jens will return to Reno to practice. 




A year's internship at Mercy Haspital, Baltimore and a general proc- 
tice in a Maryland county is Frank's object, and the sooner the better. He 
was born on June 15, 1918 in Baltimore and graduated from the University 
of Maryland School of Pharmacy with a B.S. degree. The war found him 
in the Army; first in a Medical Training Battalion and later in the 60th 
Station Hospital as Detachment Commonder. It was with this organization 
that he went overseas to the Mediterranean Theater and North Africa. Three 
months after his discharge he married Mary E. Leech on June 5, 1946 in 
Baltimore and the union has been blessed twice with Kathleen Mary 3, and 
Peggy Anne 1. Frank has sandwiched fishing and swimming between 
work as a druggist and a tour of duty at Fort Meade Station Hospital.

A graduate of the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and a 
veteran of two years in the University of Maryland Graduate School, Gordon 
W. Kelley was born in Baltimore on October 6, 1917. In Silver Spring 
in March of 1939 he married Lillian F. White of Ohio, and Janice Lucill, 
now 5, occupies much of their spare time. In the Navy during the war, 
Kelley was a Gunnery and Executive Officer. He was relieved from active 
duty in 1946. An Alpha Chi Sigma, and Phi Delta Chi, the complete com- 
muter has worked as a pharmacist during his 4 years of medical school 
in addition to being a chemist in malario research and U.S. Naval explosive 
research. The Navy has reserved a berth far him next year at its hospital 
in St. Albans, New York. 


His present jovial avoirdupois is a far cry from the three pound baby 
who was born in February, 1916 in Missouri. Ellis completed his A.B. 
degree at the University of Missouri in 1946 after eleven years, no small 
achievement in itself. In the interim he spent five years in the Medical 
Department of the Army, during which time he met Mary Elizabeth Brown 
of Portland, Oregon whom he married in Baltimore in June, 1942. He 
received a B.S. in Medicine from the Medical School of the University of 
Missouri and joined our class in the junior year with the blessing of that 
institution. A Phi Beta Pi, he was president of his sophomore class. He 
will intern at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland, Oregon and then 
do G.P. in the Pacific Northwest. 









Frank Gustav Kuehn (''pronounced Keen!") sauntered on to the scene 
July 11, 1925 in Baltimore and borrowed a cigarrette and a light from 
a nearby obstetrician. Frank continued to saunter, and to smoke, as he 
attended Johns Hopkins University. From 1943-45 Phm Second-class 
"Keen" compounded the confusion for Uncle Samuel. He attended Uni- 
versity of North Carolina (in the heart of tobacco land) and received his 
A.B. and preclinical training there prior to joining this class in the junior 
year. On November 24, 1949 Miss Elaine Hokman began pronauncing 
her name "Keen", too. An Alpha Phi Kappa, Phi Beta Kappa, and Alpha 
Kappa Kappa, Frank will intern at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore, and then 
begin specializing in OB-GYN. 


How Tim has managed fo retain his coveted bachelorhood these many 
years ia a puzzle unsolved. The sudden flush seen rising in his cheeks 
is but a ruse, however, for his appreciation for les femmes has a constant 
but high titre. Following his birth in Frostburg, Maryland on January 7, 
1921, Tim, like Topsy, "jus' grew" until he was big enough to go to college 
at Western Maryland for his pre-med training. During his college tour 
he was a member of R.O.T.C. which prepared him for his four and a half 
years in the Army Air Corps at Middletown, Pa. and in India. Tim is a 
Phi Chi. He plans a career as a good old "family doc" following an 
internship at St. Vincent's Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut. 


During the course of on even three years in the service, the Navy 
attempted to moke o dentist out of Joe, but they both gave it up os a bod 
job and Joe finished his war experience os on ensign on the U.S.S. H. R. 
Dickson. Born on August 25, 1925 in Baltimore, he attended Sworthmore 
College, and graduated from The Johns Hopkins University with an A.B. 
His sole medical interest is psychiatry, and he spent his summers at Spring 
Grove Hospital with the exception of a few weeks in 1949 when he married 
Charlotte A. Silberstein on June 26. Joe will intern at West Baltimore 
General Hospital, following this by a residency in psychiatry. 


Bill whistled his way into Wilmington, Delaware on October 12, 1923 
and may still occasionally be heard whistling down the barrel of a micro- 
scope. After a few years of intense study at Georgia Tech and the University 
of Delaware, G.W. assumed the duties of a combat infantryman with the 
Army, but this occupation was terminated on Christmas Day 1944 in the 
Battle of the Bulge by a bullet through his chest. Returning to France 
after a few months hospitalization he served as a reporter for Stars and 
Stripes. On June 4, 1949 Bill left the ranks of the unmarried when he 
joined hands with petit Jeon Ruth Granger of Wilmington. A Phi Chi and 
Student Council Representative, Bill externed and will intern at Delaware 
General Hospital back home in Wilmington.

Prime mover of Medicos Terroe Morioe and president of the Senior 
Class, Mac boosted the census of Dormont, Pennsylvania on Februory 15, 
1921. Home though, says he, is where you hang your hat. He received his 
B.S. at Grove City College, Pennsylvania and on February 18, 1943 he and 
Norma E. Feik were married. Kevin Lawrence, 5, has since assumed 
command. 46 missions os a B-17 pilot in the ETO rewarded him with a 
spreading patch of alopecia. This throttle happy Nu Sigma Nu has spent 
his summers as a flying medical officer with the Air Force. The immediate 
future holds on internship at Allentown Hospital, Pennsylvania and after a 
residency he hopes to begin removing things, either in OB-Gyn or surgery. 



Although born in New York on September 20, 1925, Dottie is a 
country girl at heart and now claims Dover, Delaware as her home town. 
From Washington College, Chestertown, Maryland she graduated with a 
B.S., and was made a member of Sigma Sigma Omicron, an honor frater- 
nity. She is much interested in the piano, although whether she plays it, 
listens to it, or sits on it is not known at this writing. She spent her summers 
at the City Morgue and Union Memorial Hospital. The secretary of the 
Senior Class will intern at St. Vincent's Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecti- 
cut, and if nothing else tempts her, she feels that general practice is her meat.

Bob first saw the light of day in Bridgewater, Virginia, May 11, 1921. 
In due time after living in both Pennsylvania and Maryland, he returned to 
Bridgewater to attend college where he received his B.A. degree in 1943. 
The army made him a good sailor, for he made many crossings on hospital 
ships and transports in special service as a physical education instructor. 
Proving that the Army and Navy can come to terms on at least one problem. 
Bob and Joan Morton, a Navy nurse, were married in Hyattsville, Maryland 
April 26, 1946. Their family now includes Robert Eugene, Jr. 3, and 
Donna Joan, 1. Bob spent his summers amassing a fortune with hammer 
and saw. On weekends softball was his chief occupation. After interning 
at City Hospital, Baltimore, Bob will practice in some quiet town with 
a good baseball diamond.

Typically late for New Years Day, Hunter arrived early on Jonuary 
2, 1924 in Philadelphia. He studied business administration at the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania, engineering at Mississippi State College, and pre- 
med at Vanderbilt University, the latter under the added strain of Army 
Regulations, giving him the distinction of attending more colleges without 
ever acquiring a degree than any other member of the class. He joined the 
class in the sophomore year after a summer vacation in the merchant mar- 
ine wore on for twelve months. Playing it safer on subsequent summers, 
he took a junior internship at University Hospital. Hunter plans to spend 
next year at Reading Hospital in Reading, Pennsylvania and following 
that a career in plastic surgery. 




The "Senor" arrived March 7, just 25 years ago, in Naguabo, Puerto 
Rico, but now calls Santurce, Puerto Rico home. Julio received his B.S. 
from the University of Puerto Rico; and his way with women os o birth- 
right. President of Sigma lota, the senor spent his spore time at St. 
Joseph's Hospital proving that nursing con be on exciting profession and 
serving o junior internship. He will return to his native land for an 
internship at San Juan City Hospitol. Julio hopes eventually to become 
a faculty member of the University of Puerto Rico, School of Medicine; 
but with a graceful shrug of his voluble shoulders he declares "Even as 
the serious professor I will deliberately enjoy life — for manana, quien 
sobe?"

On February 11, 1923 in St. Louis, Missouri, on unmilitory bundle 
of boy joined the O'Malley cion. However, some errant angel must hove 
been bugling muted, martial airs for after attending The Citadel, University 
of Virginia, and Colby College, Joe became a most complete militaryman, 
being first a member of His British Majesty's Black Watch of the Royal 
Highland Regiment. Continuing in o proud fighting man's tradition, Joe 
then became a Gyrene and saw service for Uncle Sam in the Solomon 
Islands campaigns. Laying aside his battle dress, and substituting an 
organ's sonorous soothings for the sharp rattle of the quicksteps, Joe married 
Norice Mahoney June 22, 1946 and they now have a 14 month old logistic 
problem. Norice Clark. A Sigma Nu since his University of Virginia 
days, Joe has ambitions in the field of radical surgery that will, he hopes, 
be realized after his internship at St. Francis Hospital, Hartford, Connecticut 



Evangeline hails from Philippi, West Virginia where she was born 
on November 20, 1924. She grew up in Philippi, graduated from high 
school there and attended the local college, Alderson-Broaddus. In 1945 
she received an A.B. degree from West Virginia University and in 1946 an 
M.A. degree in child develapment from Columbia University. On June 15, 
1947 she married Glenn B. Poling, a dental student and fellow West 
Virginian. Schoolwork, housework, and needlework have since occupied a 
large part of her spare time. She will intern at Union Memorial Hospital 
in Baltimore and eventually ga back to West Virginia and practice pedia- 
trics, perhaps on the staff of the Myers Clinic, owned and operated by 
Vangie's father.

The sole contribution of Biglerville, Pennsylvania to the class comes 
in the form of Bill Rever, who was born on July 19, 1923. He attended 
Cornell and the University of Maryland. Bill is one of the salt water 
specialists of the class, having spent almost 4 years in the Navy, part of 
the time as skipper of an L.C.T. in the Pacific and the remainder on a mine 
sweeper. In the Navy Chapel at Norfolk, he and Mary Frances La Bar 
were married on February 25, 1946. Bill's summers have been consumed as 
a foreman for the B. and O. and externing at Mercy Hospital. He is 
a member of Nu Sigma Nu and is chairman of their social committee. He 
has Bard-Parker fever, and hopes one day to become a surgeon after in- 
terning at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore.

Th is enterprising slave of Morpheus entered this competitive society 
on January 12, 1922. He has since resurrected many o junk heap to a 
serviceable automobile for resale. One wonders if his shingle will read 
''Paul F. Richardson, M.D. Used Car Dealer". Paul's pre-med training wos 
gleaned from Baylor University, Waco, Texas and punctuated by 4 yeors 
duty with the Army Medical Department. His ambulance anecdotes ore a 
constant source of amusement. On May 24, 1942 in Baltimore he and Naomi 
Marguerite Otto were morried and their household is now ruled by Jan 
Karen, 5. Paul will intern ot Mercy Hospital in Boltimore and plans to do 
general practice thereafter.

From Rochester, New York comes Virginia Marie Gould, who was 
born there on November 16, 1921. She graduated from Nazareth College 
with a B.S. in chemistry and then went to the Navy for two years as a 
Lt. in the WAVE. She paints in oils and very shortly we expect to see her 
work in Parergon. Comely Ginny enjoys horseracing but has been unable 
to improve the breed appreciably because of a shortage of funds while in 
medical school in spite of the expert touting available. Junior internship 
at St. Mary's Hospital and Spring Grove occupied her summers and next 
year she will intern at the Crawford W. Long Hospitol in Atlanta, Georgia, 
as Dr. Virginia Gould Reynaud. Ginny ond "Looey" were morried this 
Easter vacation, April 10, 1950. 



^acUd ^€Uciot 

Mercurial “Looey" first "showed" in New Orleans, Louisiana, July 
19, 1924. Proof of his cosmopolitan nature can be had, if needed, from 
the fact that this Emory University alumnus claims both Atlonta and 
Chicago as his present home town. A seasoned philotelist, this Sigma Chi's 
chief interest outside of medicine is "four legged animals". He hos spent 
considerable time and pay trying to "improve the breed" and in off seosons 
a well turned "shank's mare" is most apt to get a rise out of him. Al- 
though a confirmed turf man he spent four years in the Navy prior to med 
school. After graduation he intends to "return to the deep south" for an 
internship at the Crawford W. Long Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., 
with Ginny.

Bud made his first "cair' on March 2, 1920, in San Francisco, Calif. 
Fired by his success in breeding o prize herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle 
during his High School days. Bud now is interested in "stock", but of the 
coupon clipping variety. After o few years at the University of California 
he took up with the Navy and attended the University of the Air at Corpus 
Christi. Bud served in the Pacific as a pilot in the original "Dumbo" Res- 
cue Squadron, fishing many a shot-down fly-boy out of the drink under in- 
tense enemy fire. Completing these duties Bud returned to the States as 
an Instrument and Navigation instructor,. Lt. Commander Righetti and 
Gloria Campana, also a Californion, were married in Beaufort, S.C. on 
Easter Sunday, April 1, 1945, and they are awaiting the arrival of o new 
little Righetti. Bud is a Nu Sigma Nu. He will intern at Permanente 
Haspitals in Oakland, Califarnia.

The Mesmerian ait wos not very evident in Ralph's personality that 
November 30, 1921 when Cumberland heard his first wail, but his studies 
at Maryland State Teachers College and the University of Moryland soon 
exposed that power of oral anesthesia which may replace saddle block in 
his future OB practice. During the recent war Ralph served as a Navy 
pilot until he buzzed his way out of the Navy and into the Army as a 
Personnel Consultant and Company Commander at Percy Jones General 
Hospital. On June 2, 1943 he and Virginia Lee McBride were married 
in Cumberland and they have added Sheila Diane, 4, to the Roth census. 
A Nu Sigmo Nu, Ralph returned to the Army lost summer os o medical 
officer at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania and subsequently junior interned

Sam, son of Baltimore's Poet Laureate, arrived a noisy bundle of free 
verse on March 29, twenty-six years ago in the Monumental City. Writing 
as little blank verse as possible, Sam graduated from the Johns Hopkins 
University with an A.B. degree. Spending two and a half years in the 
Army, he saw service in the ETO as an infantryman. To our culture ridden 
class, he contributes with proper eclat such interests as beer and pretzels, 
although he does admit liking long hair music. The historian of Phi Delta 
Epsilon, Sam enlivens his summers by playing tennis, swimming, and 
travelling through New England and Canada. More recently he was a 
junior intern at West Baltimore General Hospital. Next year he will in- 
tern at the Sinai Hospital, Baltimore. His future plans are not known.

This dashing red haired bachelor was born on April 3, 1922 in 
Frostburg, Marylond, and later attended Western Maryland College where 
after four yeors of intensiye coeducation, he secured a B.A. degree. Three 
years in the Army Medical Corps failed to dissuade him and he came to 
medical school the same year he was discharged. An outdoor enthusiast, 
he finds time for some comping, fishing, and tennis even though he hos 
been externing at Franklin Square Hospitol for the post two years. 
Bill will join the Moryland contingent to St. Vincent's Hospital in Bridge-

spent 3 years in the Army, mostly with the 6th Amphibious Engineers in 
the campaign of New Guinea, the Bismark Archipellago, the liberation of 
the southern Phillipines and Luzon. The gray Ford with the Nu Sigma Nu 
ensign in the window carries Al to and from Taneytown, Maryland and the

Mori joined the Smith's legions on July 14, 1922 in Baltimore, Mary- 
land after nine months of careful deliberation. Learning to make more 
hasty but none the less prudent decisions Mort graduated from the Univer- 
sity of Maryland an outstanding B.S. Among the scholastic elite he is 
an Alpha Omega Alpha by virtue of his consistent high class standing. 
Mort who is also a Phi Delta Epsilon considers chess an ideal relaxani 
for the "little grey cells". An amateur mathematitian, Mort occasionally 
risks a "jit" in the interest of applied physics and the calculation of 
probabilities on local pinball mazes. He will continue, too, to be linked 
with the common clog by his "motion studies" of hospitals while interning 
at Michael Reese Hospital, Chicago, Illinois.

On February 2, 1925 there arriyed in the Sosnowski household a 
screaming, squirming conglomeration of cells. This apparition wos for 
some unknown reason nicknamed Hank. After a few mitoses and a battle 
with Dr. Potts disease. Hank sped through Southern High, snatched a B.S. 
from Loyola of Baltimore, took graduate work in chemistry at Notre Dame, 
entered Medical school, and married Muriel Doris Hatfield. All this in 
such a short time as to make your head spin. We will never forget the 
beer party he almost singlehandedly sponsored one night back in 1947. 
The Curtis Bay Polish home won't forget us either. We were given the 
pleasure of participating in a real Polish wedding and reception on July 
11, 1948 when Hank and Muriel were married out there in Curtis Bay — 
what o day, eh Hank? The Stump will intern at St. Agnes Hospital in 
Baltimore.

Ray stayed hatless through John B. Stetson University in DeLand and a 
B.S. The Navy covered his shining hair, though, and for 3 years he 
cruised about, visiting the Normandy beachhead one D Day in 1944. Lt. 
Spaulding and Frances Eloine Fretwell, of Jacksonville, Florida, were 
married 6 February, 1944 and they now have their own private little

Henry, who now resides in Hagerstown, Maryland, was born in Balti- 
more on August 28, 1925. He acquitted himself well with the 8th Army 
in Yokohama, at Loyola College, and the University of Maryland.. During 
this time he developed a taste for photography. A Nu Sigma Nu, he 
proved that he can look at the negative side of things when he spent the 
last two summers in the X-ray department of the Washington County Hos- 
pital in Hagerstown where he was also exposed to the charms of Peggy 
Ann Thumma. They are to be married on June 3rd this year and after 
a short honeymoon he will begin an internship in the Baltimore City Hospital. 
Henry, in keeping with his interest in the graphic arts, ultimately hopes to

obtrusively into the back of Anatomical Hall, Betty joined our ranks in 
the fall of 1946. Those who got close enough to know her, sing praise 
for her elfin humor and dry tart wit; the rest of us know her as a gracious, 
quiet girl who seemed less afraid than most of us of "UhlyV' bluster and

Maryland State Penitentiary did not alter the fourth, fifth, and sixth run- 
ning tendencies of his selections. In the blustry Chicago tradition, Mike 
went west to Dubuque, Iowa, and gathered a pre-medical education at Laras 
College, before spending some 23 months in the SW Pacific and the CBI 
theatre, which became of value when he was able to confirm Dr. Hull's 
brilliant observations of Calcutta. Still pleasingly unmarried, Mike will 
gladen the nursing staff of St. Lukes' Hospital in Chicago beginning in July.

The son of a prominent physician, Thib was born on September 4, 
1923 in Washington, D.C. He acquired a B.S. degree from the University 
of Maryland in 1945 and followed this with a year in graduate school 
as an instructor in zoology. Thib relieved the frustrations of medical school 
by playing the pipe organ. A job at the Maryland State Penitentiary during 
the junior year precipitated his interest in penology and criminal psychia- 
try. A Phi Chi he summered clerking in a drug store, learning of the 
sex life of the oyster at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, and 
vacationing at the Buxton Clinic in Newport News. He was president of the 
class his junior year. Providence Hospital in Washington will get his 
services after graduation. 




On December 6, 1917 a cherubic bontling was born to the Thompsons 
in Rock Hall, Maryland. They named him Bill, hoped he would be presi- 
dent some day, and sent him to Washington College for a B.S. dated 1938. 
In 1941 Bill donned khaki with the signal corps and later piloted Fortresses 
in the 8th Air Force flying 25 missions. He was decorated with DFC and 
Air Medal with 3 oak leaf clusters. On July 17, 1945, he and Jacquelyn 
May Risley of Great Falls, Montano were married and now William Randall, 
4, flies co-pilot for Bill. While in med school Bill has flown for the 
Air National Guard and this past summer served as a flying medical officer 
in the Air Force. Bill will intern at Milwaukee County Hospital, Wisconsin. 


Bate drawled into Winston-Salem, North Carolina on July 7, 1918. 
He received part of his education at the Woodberry Forest School in 
Virginia and then returned south to the University of North Carolina where 
he secured o B.S. In the Navy for the duration, he participated in the 
amphibious operations in Africa, Sicily, Salerno, Saipan, Angauer, Leyte, 
Lingauyen Gulf, and Iwo Jima as Deck, gunnery, and navigotion officer 
before he was released to inactive duty as a Lt. Commander in 1946. On 
September 7 of the same yeor he and Margaret Spencer Shackleford were 
married in Martinsville, Virginia and B.C.T. Ill joined them early this year. 
Bate, a Phi Chi, entered our class the junior year as a transfer from 
the University of North Carolina. He will intern at Union Memorial Hos- 
pital in Baltimore and will eventually do general surgery.

Al made his appearance on October 29, 1921 in Oakland, California 
He majored in bacteriology at the University of California, and in 1942 
graduated with an A.B. degree. During the recent war he gave his service 
to the medical department at Camp Barkely, Texas, Camp Atterbury, In- 
diano, and in Manila, P.l. and emerged a Captain, MAC. He is a member 
of Nu Sigma Nu and Alpha Omega Alpha. During the Sophomore year 
he was class president. He took the nuptial vows with Ruth June Sanden 
on September 4, 1943 and there is now a little Upton, David Albert, 1 year. 
Uppie will serve his internship in the Letterman General Hospitol in San 
Francisco. He plans to specialize in internal medicine and practice in 
California.

From the Garden State, Neal was born in Paterson on September 15, 

1922. Van received a B.S. degree from Calvin College in Grand Rapids 

where he also met and married Madeline Koster on June 27, 1947. The 

war found Gooch wallowing in the mud in the ETO, and after getting 

through the Battle of the Bulge unscathed, the Army saw fit to turn his 

piano playing talents loose on the civilian population of Norway. He was 

quietly discharged one pleasant spring day in his native New Jersey after 

32 months service. Last summer he externed in the Paterson General 

Hospital, and next year will serve an internship at Iowa State University & 

Hospital in Iowa City. Following this he will do general practice in 

Grand Rapids, New Jersey. 



"Qoco” dribbled into center court for the first time on September 
3, 1926 in Cioles, Puerto Rico. Undertaking his premedicoi studies at 
The University of Puerto Rico he parlayed a pair of dancing feet and 
a sharp eye into a basketball excellence which has strengthened the attack 
of the Ponce Lions Basketball Club during his summer vacations; and a 
smoothly functioning "Latin" technique with the women that has yet to foil 
him at home or away as far as we know. Coco served as a junior intern 
at St. Joseph's Hospital in his Senior year. After a senior internship, 
spent fluttering nurses' pulses, at Clinica Pila, Ponce, Puerto Rico this 
Latin Lothario expects to serve the citizens of Ciales as a general prac- 
titioner or a pediatrician. Quien sabe?

Fowler F. was born in the Lone Star State's Wichita Falls on March 
8, 1920. A year at the University of Maryland and 3 years at Trinity 
College majoring in philosophy and economics landed him a B.S. in 1942, 
and then to round out his education he took his pre-med at Yale. Of 37 
months in the Navy he spent 11 months in the South Pacific piloting dive 
bombers and fighters. Although he claims that his combat experience was 
"innocuous", he is still struggling with his service incurred ulcer symptoms. 
While still in the Navy, he married Irene Anne Generous in Jacksonville, 
Florida July 1943. Two ripples in the serenity of their married life 
developed during medical school days: Ralph Robert, 2, and Bruce Law- 
rence, 1. Fowler spent last summer in cardiovascular research at Balti- 
more City Hospital. He will intern at Mercy Hospital, Baltimare. 


Sdcu^€ind 

"Sparks" was unanimously declared perennial president of the Slide 
Projector Operators Union, which office he has ably filled between naps 
behind ye magic lantern. A dyed-in-the-wool New Englander, Cliff was 
born in Norwich, Connecticut on December 18, 1923. Not wanting to 
leave the frozen hills, he matriculated at Bowdoin College in Maine for 
his pre-med. The war found Cliff in the Navy Air Corps serving as a 
pilot of carrier based aircraft in the Pacific. He is a member of Kappa 
Sigma, and the Connecticut Medical Society. On June 21, 1947 he and 
Helen Louise Gilbert, another New Englander, were married. The Wm. 
W. Backus Hospital in Connecticut used his services during the past two 
summers and he will intern at Waterbury Hospital, again in Connecticut.

Gelsenkirchen was once a preHy little town in Western Germany, and 
it was there that Ernie entered the folds of the Wolf family on February 
23, 1921. In 1939 a change in political fancies in Germany resulted in 
the emigration of the Wolf family to our foir land and the presence of 
this very personable guy in our class. During the war Ernie served os a 
medical technician in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and is reputed to be 
a handy man with the counting chamber. He received his pre-med at The 
Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland School of Phar- 
macy. A member of Phi Delta Epsilon, he has been vice consul and 
senator in that fraternity. Ernie will intern at the Jewish Hospital in 
Cincinnati, Ohio.

Weighing in at Hagerstown on March 9, 1923 at 8lbs. 2oz. with his 
diapers soaking wet, ''Doc" had squirted up to a 6ft. 4in. when, with a 
B.S. from the University of Maryland, a year's stint at the University of 
Maryland Dental School, and a year's research on filariasis at Johns 
Hopkins School of Hygeine behind him, he first towered amongst us. 
Treasurer of the Nu Sigma Nu, he externed at Casualty Hospital in Wash- 
ington, D.C. where twixt I.V. fluids, progress notes, and falling arches he 
successfully pursued Margaret Mary Hammet, technician, object: matri- 
mony. On August 27, 1949 Margaret Mary let him catch her in front of 
the altar at a pretty church wedding. "Doc", a future Hagerstown G.P., 
will intern at Garfield Memorial in Washington, D.C.

ANATOMY 


In the enlightened year of 1946 there were 
no dissection riots, but none-the-less there was 
Cross Anatomy, Queen of the Medical Sciences, 
bane of a freshman's life. For all that, our 
cadavers lay on gleaming, well lit, stainless 
metal amid airy modern accommodations in- 
stead of, as in days happily past, in "dark 
dissection dungeons". 

White coated, dedicated, intense, we invaded 
the innermost privacies of those discarded tem- 
ples of humanity. Day by weary, stench-increas- 
ing day we progressed from alcolyte to novice, 
to intime in the labyrinthine maze of fact and 
fascial fancy of which Anatomy consists. 

"You must keep the wrappings wet!" "No! 
No! a butcher is more gentle" "Und now, I 
will draw a little sketch." "What are the re- 
lationships of . . . ?" "Name the branches of 
. . . !" "Where does the . . . muscle originate? 
Where insert?" The exhortations, the damnings, 
the infrequent, treasured praise, the questions, 
all became a litany-like background for the work 
of dissection. Then gradually the answers came 
more readily and Drs. Uhlenhuth, and Figge, 
and Smith smiled more frequently, and even 
allowed upon occasion that we were learning 
"a little anatomy", and deserving of the "high 
privilege of human dissection"! 



EDUARD UHLENHUTH, PH.D 
Professor of Anatomy 
Head of the Department 



We soon learned to live with the smell of 
cadaver. 


Dr. Karl Mech points out the Sartorius to 
a worried four.

EMBRYOLOGY & HISTOLOGY 

This department, now presided over by the same Dr. Figge wha aided 
and abetted our assault on gross anatomy, was in the days of our pristine 
glory as Medical Frosh presided over by Dr. ''Ducky" Davis and his able 
assistants. Dr. '^Honest" John Lutz and Professor "Ree Bob!" Harne. With 
the aid of an endless supply of slides and a limitless fund of patience 
and good humor, this hardworking trio gave us the much needed insight 
into the origins and the microscopic anatomy of our future patients. "We 
study the normal that we may know the abnormal" was the keynote of the 
good Dr.'s labors with us. 

In fancy, in models, in slides in a dark sleep producing room projected, 
we followed the ova and sperm to blastomere; we followed the blastomere 
to ectoderm and endoderm and mesoderm; we followed the "derms" to 
kidneys and hearts and fingernails and such. Over and over we retraced 
the evolving and diversifying pattern of human growth, our eyes glued 
to a microscope's eyepiece; our ears tuned to "Ducky's" informative quaver. 


We'll always remember Dr. Davis' haunting 

cry, "Now, gentlemen!" The Sciatic, Dr. Phelan? 





CARL L. DAVIS, M.D. 
Professor of Anatomy, Retired 


FRANK H. J. FIGGE, PH.D. 
Professor of Anatomy 


Correlated for the first time with Neuro Physiology, which was newly 
inserted in the frosh schedule, neuroanatomy introduced us to the intricacies 
of the central nervous system. Dr. Davis' bold and forthright exposures, 
effected by the seemingly casual flick of his canny thumb, never failed 
to amaze us, and nearly always defied imitation. However, "Ducky" and 
his two assistants. Prof. Home and Dr. Lutz, soon had us so thoroughly 
indoctrinated that we skipped in and out of the bewildering arrangement 
of nuclei, fasiculi, and radiations with something approaching assurance 
in the dissection of the human brain.

EMIL G. SCHMIDT, PH.D. 
Professor of Biological Chemistry 
Head of the Department 


BIOCHEMISTRY 

Sugar 5822! Dr. Emil C. Schmidt racked 
his chalk and strode out amid the rumble of 
appreciative laughter as he capped his lecture 
with a punch line memoric for the qualitative 
identification of sugar in the urine. So it was, 
what with one stratagem or another and a modi- 
cum of hard work and midnight oil, that Dr. 
Wylie (who then doubled in brass as professor 
of Biochemistry) and his staff taught us the 
subject. 

For many of us ''gel'" was merely a collo- 
quialism for quail until we had heard out the 
Dean on colloid chemistry as applied 'to the 
human body's physiology. Other of our notions 
were equally quaint no doubt, but we gradually 
learned the origin, function, and union number 
of all the enzymes and hormones from os to 
anus. This converted our heretofore relatively 
simple ideas of a gut composed of mucosa, 
submucosa, muscularis, and serosa into the 
concept of the gut as a chemical cartel whose 
interlocking subsidiaries worked night and day 
to confound freshmen medical students and 
incidentally do some secreting, excreting, and 
just plain eating. 

We delved into the stucty of respiration and 
immediately this simple matter of sucking in 
air and blowing it out again became a complex 
system of pH's, 0., tensions, buffer pairs, par- 
tial pressures, the electrochemical affinity of 
oxygen for acid as compared to basic elements 
and respiratory enzymes. Somehow we managed 
to go on breathing, though some of us got 
slightly blue in the face at times. 


We balanced the equation . . . . 


. . . . But we missed . . . . 





The man who designed such chaste simplicity as Vit A,B,C, etc. as a 
front for those interminable carbon chain formulae could probably simplify 
bureaucratic Washington's hydra-headed personnel roster without lopping 
off a single head. At any rate, organic formulae take some fancy me- 
morizing no matter what they are called. 

There were of course extensive sojourns in the laboratory associated 
with the aforementioned theoretical considerations. There, hopelessly en- 
tangled in bunsen burners, test tube racks, water baths, and ring stands 
one tried calling Sugar 5822 with varied success; or if blessed with the 
luck of the Irish, the patience of Job, and a flair for the impossible, one 
consturcted dialyzing membranes that dialyzed instead of at the crucial 
moment perforating; or prepared solutions of Hb with the absorption lines 
of Hb, instead of LiCI or something else equally fantastic, when viewed 
through the spectrometer; or if one were Fortune's favorite child finished 
all experiments in good order in time to catch a late afternoon show — don't 
lock 'em in hereinafter. Doctor! That last line's a joke! 



PHYSIOLOGY 



WILLIAM R. AMBERSON, PH.D. 
Professor of Physiology 
Head of the Department 


Physiology as we recall it is a completely 
frustrating admixture of sooted drums that 
wouldn't stay sooted, and white coats that always 
were; compounded with scholarly and completely 
unfrustrated lectures by the gentlemanly Dr. 
Amberson, the laconic, forceful Dr. Dietrich 
Smith, the quiet spoken Dr. Oster, and the acid 
Dr. Andersen. 

However, in retrospect, it is the high adven- 
ture of the laboratory we will recall most 
vividly; where due to the perversity of things 
animate and inanimate we spent those long 
heartbreaking afternoons smoking millions of 
miles of glazed paper, to preserve, if fortune 
smiled, an inch or two of "representative rec- 
ord" in the shel lac'd soot; where using each 
other for subjects we became familiar with in- 
tricately interlocked behavior of respiration, 
circulation, and metabolism; where day by day 
we exposed the functioning of that wondrous 
sentient machine, the human body. 


Dr. Dietrich C. Smith, Dr. Shipley, and Stan Phrenology 

cut a drum. 










BACTERIOLOGY 



FRANK W. HACHTEL, M.D. 
Professor of Bacteriology 
Head of the Department 


Who cannot recall Dr. HachteTs soft spoken 
lectures on the ubiquitous bacterium and the 
uses of agar; that mad rush to the opthalmolo- 
gist when confronted with well covered black- 
boards of submicroscopic writing; the earnest, 
feeling lectures of Dr. McAlpine on the infec- 
tious nature of water and milk, and his'constant 
crusade against a dangerously prevalent faith 
in their purity; the afternoons spent differen- 
tiating building vibrations from bacterial mo- 
tility; the unknowns that invariably fermented 
atypical sugars, changed staining characteristics, 
grew on the wrong media in heretofore undes- 
cribed colonies, and were far too easily con- 
taminated by ''sneezes and unflamed loops"; 
that factum factorum par excellence, Joe; those 
typhoid booster shots suspended in the distilled 
essence of a mule's kick and cobra venum; those 
tiny agglutination tubes in which someone else 
always shook up what had settled out; the 
mathematical maze of a titre protocol? The 
man with his hand up! You, sirrah! didn't 
"sophomore" here 

For it was in our sophomore year we learned 
Koch's Postulates, the diagnosis of bacterial 
disease, the principles of immunization, and the 
preparation of bacterial vaccines.

PHARMACOLOGY

j 



JOHN C. KRANTZ, JR., PH.D., D.Sc. 
Professor of Phormacoloy 
Head of the Department 


It is called the ''hour of charm" when Dr. 
John Krantz unfolds the mechanisms of the 
drugs in the physicians pharmacopeal "arma- 
mentarium". Day by day in the lecture room 
and laboratory the erudite professor and his 
capable corps of assistants made comprehensible 
to us as sophomores the rationale of what had 
heretofore been only the heiroglyphics of a 
doctor's traditionally illegible prescription. 

But Dr. Krantz did more than teach us 
properly to prescribe. He fired our imagina- 
tions and breathed life into Gtt's, iii, tid, p.c., 
by sagely interlarding the magic of history and 
the personalities of those sacred greats of an- 
tiquity into his subjects, so that forevermore 
a pharmacy can be for us no dim lit tier of 
tiny boxes and dust filled jars, but must always 
be a treasure trove of inspirational reminders 
of noble medical traditions. 









PATHOLOGY 



HUGH R. SPENCER, M.D. 
Professor of Pathology 
Head of the Department 


General pathology in the sophomore year is 
a confused state of mind, complicated by rapid- 
fire lectures and two hundred odd slides repre- 
senting the diabolical variations of the Dali- 
esque world of human disease seen through the 
low power field. The whole thing was patently 
impossible! That was our single certainty as 
we faced the task of preparing a hundred odd 
sketches for Dr. Robert Wright's dour 'approval 
and ourselves for the final practical. 

Having learned to differentiate early and 
late Hodgkin's, and phrase our complete cer- 
tainty in chaste and guarded technical language 
amenable to complete reversal of interpretation 
should we blunder once more, we entered the 
third year course in gross pathology. In the 
jar-lined cubicles of the Pathology Museum we 
peered at monsters and felt a measure of success 
when we could differentiate a consolidated lung 
from a normal liver. 


"Autopsy reports must be in' within two 
weeks" 


Dr. Wright ponders the life cycle of the ec- 
chinococcus. 




Dr. ''Soft Hearted" John W. Wagner 
Neuropathology 


Dr. Dexter L. Reimann 
Surgical Pathology 


The responsibility for our successful completion of the course must 
be shouldered, whatever their feelings in the matter, by: Dr. Spencer, whose 
deliberate, lucid presentations placed the rock of reason in the shifting 
sands of bewilderment; Dr. Reimann, whose breezy, fast-spoken simplifica- 
tions added spice to the course and shed no little light on the subject; 
Dr. Wagner, The Elaborate Efucidator; Dr. Wright, who steadfastly insisted 
upon our being 100 per cent right; Dr. Warner's capsule reviews punctuated 
by the conga rhythms of the BCH steam pipes; and a host of others too 
numerous to give individual mention in this limited space, but all of them 
fully guilty of having done their unstinted "damndest" to teach us pathology. 

To say this, and nothing more of an experience in pathology is like 
saying "the earth is a sphere, period." 

In the senior year, in the CPC's, we came to appreciate pathology 
further — as the harsh, honest light of after thought and reason revealing 
our mistakes and underlining our limitations, pathology becomes the nagging 
voice of scientific conscience that will make of all of us better, more 
humble physicians.

CLINICAL PATHOLOGY 



MILTON S. SACKS, M.D. 
Associate Professor of Medicine 
Head of Clinical Pathology 


Remember how bled out and anemic looking 
everyone became as the deadline for coverslip- 
pulled smears closed in on us; and how willing 
someone else always was to stick you? Sure 
you do, that was in Clinical Pathology, Dr. 
Milton Sack's course. Y'know — the one where 
the only typical slides you saw all year were 
in the final practical? And all the exam ques- 
tions were easy? Who's got their tongue in 
their cheek? Not me — that's bubble gum. I'm 
talking about that course where you become a 
hematologist, a urinologist, a fecologist, and 
a parisitologist. You must recall it — the one 
where you learn to balance water? The lab 
where, if you change eyes carelessly, you're 
looking down your neighbor's microscope, and 
if you reach for that "clean ironed cotton hand- 
kerchief" too fast you pick your buddy's pocket 
over in the other aisle. Come now, the place 
where Rh isn't Rita Hayworth's old initials and 
everybody's still excited about it? You "remem- 
bered all the time"? "How could you forget?" 
I dunno, I often wondered about that myself, 
but it was a darn good course anyway.

PSYCHIATRy 


The course in psychiatry at the University 
of Maryland is entering its renaissance, with 
Dr. Jacob Finesinger as Michelangelo. His task 
is most formidable, for he seeks not only to 
work in the brick and mortar from which will 
rise a psychiatric hospital, but also to shape 
the attitudes of students and faculty in order 
to develop a wider and more accurate under- 
standing of the role of the physician. Besides 
the unfolding of the "doctor-patient relation- 
ship", a teacher-student relationship has been 
established that might well be emulated. 

In this endeavor he will find many disciples. 
One has already emerged in the person of Dr. 
Lisansky, who serves to bridge the fast-narrow- 
ing gap between Medicine and Psychiatry. We 
of the senior class have watched his development 
in this new medium from his first timid attempts 
to his now confident "Ah yes, and how does 
that make you feel?" 

Of our psychiatric courses in the first three 
years, suffice it to say that with a very few 
notable exceptions, they were largely uncon- 
vincing. 

Today the graduate who sees only the lesion 
and not the patient is a rarity, and even he is 
beset by doubt, for it is becoming increasingly 
apparent that the path of such an individual 
leads but to Pathology. 

To a few of us psychiatry will be a life-work; 
to all of us it will remain, consciously or not, 
a part of our work and of our lives. For with 
our new-found approach the patient who was 
formerly "a crock" has become an invigorating 
challenge, and the 'Practice of Medicine once 
more assumes the mantle of Humanity.

Professor of Clinical Medicine 
Chairman of the Department of Medic 


The first opportunity we hod to become 
acquainted with the Department of 'Medicine 
and the Department of Medicine with us, 9c- 
curred in the first semester of our sophomore 
year when we were taught the art of medical 
history taking. Dr. Wolff, in his quiet way, 
emphasized from the very beginning the value 
of becoming a thorough physician. We learned, 
among other things, that negative as well as 
positive findings must be included in a good 
medical history. With the weapons 'obtained 
during the semester, i.e. our "little green book 
and stethoscope", we trouped into the second 
semester of our sophomore class. At last we 
were to learn the fundamentals of inspection, 
palpation, percussion, and ausculation. Now 
this, we felt, was the real art of medicine. Our 
subjects — ourselves. We were putting into prac- 
tice the knowledge gained from lectures by Drs. 
Wolff and Reiter. We graduated from exam- 
inations of questionably normal fellow class- 
mates to our first contact with patients.

CBC, PSP, BP, qd. "never had a sick day" 



Up to this point we felt that we weren't worth 
a used finger cot — we soon changed. The class 
was divided into small groups under different 
instructors, who took us to various hospitals 
throughout the city. At first the examination 
of real patients frightened us — this too soon 
changed. In addition to our practical work we 
were introduced to Cordon Wilson Hall where 
we developed muscle cramps and low back pain 
while attending the weekly medical clinics on 
some of the more common conditions such as 
Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia. 

In the third year the Department of Medicine 
was constantly with us. Our lecture course be- 
gan with talks on diseases of the cardio-vascular 
system by Drs. Love, Leach, and Scherlis. We 
were then exposed to the kidney diseases by 
Dr. Sacks, including the newer concepts in 
lower nephron nephroses; the respiratory di- 
seases by Drs. Fort, Langeluttig, Jacobson, 
Bryson, Serra, and Hartz; allergic diseases by 
Dr. Bu'bert; gastro-intestinal diseases by Drs.

Acton; also lectures on arthritis by Dr. Lisansky. 
It can be seen that in addition to becoming 
acquainted with the majority of diseases we 
also met most of the members of the Medicine 
Department staff. A weekly medical clinic de- 
signed to coincide with the daily lecture, material 
was held throughout the year. We received 
further training in physical diagnosis at various 
hospitals throughout the city, where there was 
available a wealth of clinical material. The 
emphasis was on cardio-vascular and respiratory 
diseases. Despite double masking and extra- 
long stethoscope tubing we all stood in fear 
of the red bug that bores holes in people's lungs. 
Five busy weeks were spent in the Medical Dis- 
pensary. Here we took histories and performed 
physical examinations on the new patients, ex- 
amined urines ad infinitum, recorded negative 
findings ad nauseaum, missed lunch, and ar- 
rived late for ensuing classes. We learned that

haircut isn't necessarily something acquired at 
the local tonsorial parlor, that it is possible 
to combine speed and accuracy, and that water- 
melon seed tea is good for urinary retention. 
All in all we felt ourselves fairly well grounded 
in Medicine; that is until Weil's disease came 
up on the final. 

Medicine in the fourth year was a different 
matter. Under the new program we spent four 
weeks at University Hospital and another four 
at Mercy Hospital where we were exposed to 
the charms of the feminine side of medicine 
and learned the routine of hospital procedure. 
On each of our assigned patients (the privilege 
of the house staff) we did histories, physicals, 
CBC's, urines, and stools, and it was our re- 
sponsibility to follow their therapy and course 
and present them on ward rounds. Although we 
were given a few lectures, emphasis was placed

upon the practical side of medicine and to further the illusion we were 
permitted (at University Hospital) to spend every fifth night in a well 
appointed room on the third floor, next to the colored male toilet (neither 
door is well marked which occasionally resulted in confusion). During these 
tours of night duty we were assigned new patients that we might follow a 
case from its insipency. A few of us even became experienced in following 
a bleeding ulcer with blood pressures every half hour and hemoglobin 
determinations q3h. But then in the morning there was always a hot 
breakfast and the relief of adding our advice or grievances to the bulletin 
board in the little cu'bicle on the first floor. At both University Hospital 
and Mercy, we peopled the medical specialty clinics, correcting diagnoses 
that had been been established in 1924, writing prescriptions for stuff

woefully inadequate is the average physician in 
matters allergic, and that blue soda bicarb 
tablets may be twice as potent as the red variety 
in a great many gastro-intestinal disturbances. 
We had graduated from the "'hey, you" of the 
third year, and the dispensary nurses tagged us 
with a multitude of names, and occasionally 
we heard Dr., or if we were particularly hope- 
less, Dr. So and So, please . . . We owe a debt 
of gratitude to the house staffs of both Mercy 
and University for their cooperation, and a 
series of therapeutic lectures; to Dr. Woodward 
for his rounds in infectious disease, and his 
introduction to research procedures; to Dr. 
Sacks for his hemotology rounds; to Dr. Mor- 
rison for his conferences in gastroenterology; 
to Dr. Marriott for his enlightenment on EKC, 
and the many other pearls he cast before us; 
and to many visiting men who gave so freely 
of their time and effort that we might sharpen 
our diagnostic and therapeutic acumen.

seniors to occasionally recognize skin lesions. 

The guiding spirit is beloved Dr. Harry M. 
Robinson, Sr., a professorial unguentum of 
equal parts: humanitarian, doctor, teacher, 

lecherously leering leprechaun, and barnum! 

As juniors, infected with the professor's enthu- 
siasm we raced the late, lamented, shetland- 
pony-of-a-dog, Mickey, for a view of the lesions, 
vaulting recklessly back and forth across the 
desks. As seniors, lack of canine competition i 
and our inherent dignity reduced frenzied os- 
cillations to a dead run in the open spaces of 
the Clinic. 

So thanks to Dr. R. and Co. we learned 
"skin", learned to bet on lues in season, learned 
to doubt silver haired innocents, learned to wash 
our hands before and after looking at skin 
lesions, and often once more after finally mak- 
ing the diagnosis, and learned that teaching 
can be fun and learning practically painless —

We disappointed Robbie now and then by failing to observe a "well

"follicular plugging" or a "slightly raised macule". We also learned 
about that motley, chameleon of a disease, syphilis; for when the chief 
had exhausted the day's cases, "You, Pete!" "Yah, Pop!" would ring 
out and then the professors would take over and hold forth on "Lues, the

Pediatrics (it is a Creek word, you knowj 
was held in two sections, one at Mercy and one 
Qt University. The Mercy Section was lorded 
over by ''Little Caesar" Josephs and the other 
by red-topped "Blockie" Joslin. Little Caesar 
was spoiled early in the year when he had 
"I'eager" Henson and "I'beaver" Healy and Co. 
The worst time he ever had was when he got 
the "See no work, hear no work, and never 
speak of work" quartet of Coller, Cowen, Cra- 
craft, and Bisgyer. However, the Mercy Section 
got good training from "Pappy", Moransky and 
Fineman and we will all remember them for 
their "pearls" — even though we were often 
stringing them along. 

The University Section slaved — at least they 
told everyone, but we know differently — under 
the whip of Joslin and the luminaries who 
graced the 5th floor. Other than the fact that 
the kids thought ophthalmoscopes were hammers 
and used them so, the dispensary was a wild 
place carried on by "Kiddies" Finklestein and 
"Bubbling-over" S. C. Click in fine fashion. 

However, croup tents, diarrhea, formulas, 
and bird cages notwithstanding, we will all 
remember the excellent esprit de corps that 
pervaded the department under Drs. Bradley 
and Friedenwald.

SURGERY 


Deep, drawling incantations on the barber 
surgeons of the long robe, the Murphy button,, 
phlebothrombosis and thrombophlebitis ushered 
the Sophomore class on its surgical journey. 
Dr. Thurston P. Adams, more affectionately 
known as 'Turk" among confreres and disciples, 
was our patient and laconic guide into the 
mystic realm of basic principles. It was in the 
third and fourth years that Turk revelled in 
his glory. Here in bedside clinical sessions and 
in the operating room clinics he added many 
a pearl to our string. 

Another phase of sophomore surgery was 
conducted by Dr. Otto Brantigan and his staff 
in Surgical Anatomy. In many hours spent in 
lectures and at gross dissections in the anatomy 
lab they bridged the gap between anatomy in 
the abstract and clinical anatomy as applied 
to the study and practice of medicine and 
surgery. 

As Junior students we faced with awe and 
consternation the ponderous volume of Christo- 
pher and the multitudes of verbage associated 
with surgery. Dr. Harry Hull's morning lec- 
tures, however, always seemed to lighten the 
burden by extricating from the haystack the 
salient and practical points and leaving behind 
the minutiae to be argued by the theoreticians. 


Dr. Haase demonstrates the sinus flush for 

Jensen and Yeager. Dr. Howard Mays leans on diagnostic finger. 



"There ain't no such thing as a sprain until 
you've gotten an X-ray." "There ain't no 
definite signs and symptoms of appendicitis." 
The grammar may not have been correct, but 
indelible impressions were left on the uninitiated 
minds. "The treatment of mechanical obstruc- 
tion consists of decompression, hydration, and 
operation." Thus in three words we had what 
others took volumes to say. Questions fired at 
his students were not of the "guess what I'm 
thinking" variety, but dealt with the every- 
day commonplace phenomena — not the "wierd 
beards" as he so aptly phrased it. Cryptic, 
laconic "Hullisms", those expressions of prac- 
tical surgical value were as much a mark of 
the man as his fisherman's chapeau, the butt 
of many a student quip. 

Under the guidance of the OPD staffs at both 
University and Mercy Hospitals, Junior students 
incised and drained furuncles, applied casts to 
broken limbs, excised in-grown toenails and 
cleaned and dressed leg ulcers. The assistance 
of a more experienced nurse was frequently 
invoked when a patient's bandage degenerated 
before the student's embarrassed gaze. 

On the sixth floor of the Bressler Building 
small groups of Juniors were initiated into the 
hallowed routine of the surgical "scrub" and 
"prep". Here we alternated as operator, assist- 
ant, anesthetist, and nurse in the performance 
of basic operations under strict (?) sterile

technique and the hawk-like, all-seeing eyes of Dr. George Covatos. Who 
can forget his terse reminder that "you're the assistant; you're supposed 
to assist, not just stand there and watch". 

As Seniors we divided the two months of surgery between University 
and Mercy. Formal, didactic lectures were few, being replaced by in- 
formal seminars with small groups in which everyone participated actively, 
and where the patient was examined and questioned before the group. 
The University staff included Drs. C. R. Edwards, Yeager, Brantigan, Hull, 
Reifschnider, Adams, and Goughian. At Mercy Drs. Wise, Hutchins, Pes- 
sagno, Trimble, Garlick, Robinson, Phelan, Zupnik, and Loker guided the 
seminars. 

Advancement to the exalted post of Glinical Glerks was our reward 
for surviving the three preceding harrowing years (at least we could say 
"good-morning" to the doorman). We were assigned patients on the wards 
on whom we took histories, did physicals, watched the operations and 
observed the post-operative care and treatment. Urine exams and CBC's 
became miserable G.G. nightmares, but even the grimmest moments of stupor 
and despair were raised to pleasureable heights as we engaged in enjoyable

pastimes with amiable ward nurses. But it was during our tours of duty 
in the Accident Room that we learned what a busy G.P/s office must be 
like. Here we assisted in diagnosing and treating everything from lacerated 
fingers to spontaneous abortions. The Wednesday morning CPC's were 
highlights of wisdom and entertainment where the surgeons pitted their 
clinical wits against the coldly factual pathologists, both at times being 
perturbed by embarrassing student queries. 

Dr. Charles Bagley bestowed upon each Junior a collection of type- 
written sheets with instructions that all information therein was to be 
committed to our overburdened memory. The first exam was universally 
flunked, but shortly thereafter we convinced everyone that we were neither 
cerebral arteriosclerotics nor paretics and quickly straightened out our 
Hoffmans, Babinskis, and Rombergs. 

Dr. Bagley continued to conduct the senior neurosurgical instruction 
with the constant assistance of other members of the staff. Students were 
unperturbed by the pitiful expressions on the faces of patients as each 
in turn would mercilessly pound with reflex hammer and gleefully try 
to elicit ankle clonus.

In our senior year, we found ourselves catheterizing bladders, dilating 
urethral strictures, and palpating prostates. Dr. Toulson, in a series of 
lectures, demonstrations, and slides had set the stage in the junior year. 

Clinics and ward rounds in small groups and attendance at operations 
and upon the outpatients at both University and Mercy Hospitals rounded 
out the teaching program. Final oral examinations in G.U. surgery by 
Dr, Toulson added abundant humor to academic labors as the good surgeon, 
it seems, always joined in the conspiracy to pass even the thickest of us 
with flying colors. 

Dr Harry Hull's lectures and Dr. Milton Wilder's ward rounds at 
BCH introduced the junior class to the principles of orthopedic surgery. 

In the senior year, Drs, Voshell, Ullrich, and Wilder continued the program 
of didactic, clinical, bedside, and outpatient instruction at both University 
and Mercy Hospitals. With zest and gusto we splashed rolls of plaster 
of Pans in water and then tangled up the limbs of our buddies. With 
such solid experience we were soon plastering victims in the Accident Room. 

Pleasant respite from downtown Baltimore routine was furnished by 
trips to Dickeyville and the Kernan Hospital for Crippled Children, where 
discussions and demonstrations of physical and occupational therapy were 
included in the program.

Before the junior class, Dr. Looper delivered lectures on Nose and 
Throat and Dr. O'Rourke on Otology, supplementing their words with 
lantern slides. Lantern slides offered the knowledge-thirsty members of 
the class of '50 some of their most profitable moments, the prevailing 
darkness being quite conducive to meditative slumber. 

At first with hesitation, then with dexterity, we inserted tongue- 
depressors into mouths and specula into ears in our search for inflamed 
tonsils and punctured drums. Under the guidance of Drs. Zinn and Kayser 
at Mercy Hospital, we peered down bronchoscopes and esophogoscopes 
while our confreres held unwilling subjects on the table in the chamber of 
horrors. 


Dr. Monte Edwards, in his introductory words, included among his 
many titles "rear admiral" and "super duper pooper snooper". In mild 
and soft-spoken words, he then explained the seat of trouble in matters 
proctologic. In dispensaries and clinics, we acquired what in some circles 
is considered a very rude habit by inserting instruments up the distal end 
of thirty foot tubes. In addition, the gloved forefinger became a fountain 
of diagnostic knowledge. In the latter days of his senior year, the student 
spoke with assurance as he ordered his patient to assume the angle.

Encountering no cephalo-pelvic dispropor- 
tion, Dr. Louis Douglass pulled a model baby 
through an adequate model pelvis. Simple 
enough. He repeated all phases of the procedure 
with facility. This first demonstration convinced 
some of us as juniors that even DeLee and 
Greenhill was within the realm of human capa- 
bility. The words of Drs. Dixon, Kaltreider, 
Siegel, Savage, and Reese were readily com- 
prehensible. While in the O.B. dispensary, some 
of us even mastered the art of palpation with 
the aid of Leopold's maneuvers. However, the 
task on the threshold of which even the most 
courageous of juniors trembled, was reserved 
for a week of confinement at BCH. Since we 
worked at night while attending classes during 
the day, this became a test of human endurance. 
We delivered a few times, we observed more 
times, we blundered many times. Occasionally 
we could successfully feign ignorance, which 
considering our medical inexperience might be 
believable, but blood pressures and urinalyses 
through the night befell our miserable lot. 


BP's. Need more be said? 








In our senior year we consumed two concentrated weeks in obstetrics, 
the outside service being our exclusive domain. This entailed hours spent 
in some of Baltimore's finest slums. The pitter-patter of the feet of little 
mice across one's sterile field may be a distasteful consideration to the 
laymen, but the dashing men in white were called upon in the face of many 
unfavorable circumstances. Some of us left our namesakes behind to be 
borne for a generation by little bundles of joy. 

In the dispensaries we performed the manifold phases of obstetrical 
work. On the seventh floor of University Hospital, we were assigned pa- 
tients in labor and at times even our brighter members were reddened by 
a BOA in the hall or the labor room.

GYNECOLOGy 

Dr. J. Mason Hundley, Jr. and his staff of 
capable assistants, Drs. Brady, Cornbrooks, 
Diehl, Diggs, and Dumler combined their varied 
talents during our Senior year to keep a steady 
flow of practical gynecological information 
emanating from the operating amphitheatre, the 
bedside, and the dispensary — all this to the 
everlasting edification of the eager senior stu- 
dent. And they made it interesting. We had 
been fully indoctrinated during our third year 
with a lengthy series of formal lectures mostly 
by the ''Chief'. We learned with amusement 
that "woman" might be defined as a ^'consti- 
pated biped with a backache". We were to hear 
about this on other occasions. We heard all 
dbout "father's tumor", and were apprised of 
the fact that "cabbage heads" fall heir to far 
less of the complaints peculiar to the female 
of the species than their visceroptotic sisters. 
It remained for the Department of Surgery, 
however, to aptly define that oft performed Gyn. 
surgical procedure, supravaginal hysterectomy, 
as an operation in which one takes away the 
baby carriage and leaves behind the play pen. 
We learned further that the uterus, an organ 
of infinite possibility for pathology, could be 
radiated, scraped, hung up, or taken out. With 
counterfeited demeanor of professional imper- 
sonality we listened to the most intimate of 
feminine matters and acquired a knack and a 
knowledge concerning that gold mine of pathol- 
ogy, the female generative tract.

ANESTHESIOLOGY 


Didatically anesthetized by means of a rapid 
induction during our junior year, we progressed 
to a practical status, when as seniors we dis- 
pensed the "sleepy stuff" under the watchful 
eye of Dr. Nelson and his staff in the glittering 
cubicles opening to the east off the seventh floor 
surgical corridor. There in the misty, half 
awake of the predawn we gradually wakened 
under the apprehensive eyes of the surgical staff 
as the patient sank to the proper plane of 
oblivion, and we settled down to maintaining 
the desired relaxation without too greatly 
abusing the P-R-B P. This we learned in 
addition to basic anesthesiology: (1.) The 

speciality is an all important adjunct to good 
surgery requiring in its ideal practice a thor- 
ough knowledge of physiology and an infinite 
capacity for meticulous routine and exact ob- 
servation. (2.) Anesthesists should be bred with 
a blood pressure cuff growing from their left 
ear; a complete distaste for late morning sleep- 
ing; the ability to breathe pure ether indefinite- 
ly; and a prenatal course in the psychology of 
patients and surgeons.

F. EDWIN KNOWLES, JR., M.D.

Chairman of the Department 


In the junior year Dr. Freennan's energetic, 
enthusiastic lectures fended off Morpheus dur- 
ing the post prandial siesta hours and reviewed 
the anatomy and physiology of the eye. As 
seniors we, per force, began to see eye to eye 
with the patients, as armed with the knowledge 
gleaned from Dr. Knowles' discrete,^ well de- 
fined, capsule lectures with the pearly margins 
(Dermatology was taken concurrently, y'know!) 
we probed the secret fastness of their orbs. 
Professor Knowles also conducted ward rounds 
in the University Hospital, reviewing for our 
benefit the ophthalmologic pathology currently 
in the house. In the clinic, where we daily 
tangled forelocks and swapped dandruff with 
the patients in our direct ophthalmoscopic ex- 
aminations, Dr. Ruby Smith reviewed our cases, 
demonstrated techniques of examination, and 
finally by dint of her gentle but inflexible 
catechisms we began to use our ophthalmoscopes 
for examining eyes intelligently and fruitfully. 
Dr.. Osazewski, peering out from behind his 
inevitable cigar, too played a role in our intro- 
duction to perimeters, tonometers, retinscopes, 
etc. and their use in the diagnosis and treatment 
of the "Diseases of the Eye".

ROENTGENOLOGY 


''When in doubt, get an X-ray — get one 
anyway, to be sure" — so we've heard. After 
you get same, how do you read it? To answer 
the question, we have called on the Drs. Kilby, 
Davidson, Macht, and Barnett, who have en- 
deavored to teach us the art of interpretation 
of those shades of gray. We look at areas of 
shadow and clearing, thinning and thickening, 
crater and mass — and wonder that so much can 
be seen in mere black and white. Fortuitous 
concadenation! 

After didactic lectures at City, we could at 
least talk X-ray. The fog that was an X-ray 
film began to clear when we became Seniors, 
for we had numerous conferences of watching 
X-rays — they were the nicest classes, where we 
always got to sit down in a dimly-lit room for 
a quiet, peaceful hour of just watching. At 
last we came to the practical aspect of looking 
at films of our own patients. The mysterious 
"X" in X-ray was gradually solved, and those 
films came to have meaning. Of course, it's 
still safer to read the reports of the Roent- 
genology Department.

S”=? 



The Class of 1950 is fortunate in that it is the first class to benefit 
by the revised senior curriculum instituted in September 1949. The result 
of many years of planning by several successive faculty committees, the 
outstanding feature of the new schedule is the division of the school year 
into fields of concentration embracing the major divisions of medical 
practice. 

The Senior student spends two months each on Medicine and Surgery, 
including the specialties in each branch. One month each is spent on 
Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, and Psychiatry, with an additional 
month divided between Anesthesiology, Dermatology including Syphilis, 
and Ophthalmology. During each period the student's entire time is devoted 
to the current subject or subjects, except that on Wednesday the entire class 
meets for clinical pathological conferences and one or two formal lectures, 
including a weekly lecture in Public Health. 

Except for the Wednesday lectures, didactic instruction has been almost 
entirely discontinued, a second major objective in the formation of the new 
curriculum. Instruction is given by supervision during clinical clerkships 
on the wards and in the dispensaries, by attendance at staff and depart- 
mental conferences, and at seminars conducted primarily for the senior 
student. 

Almost without exception the Senior Class is enthusiastically in favor 
of the new system. In former days the senior year was a mad potpourri of 
unrelated subjects, in which the unfortunate student floundered around in a 
vain attempt to learn everything at once, with the result frequently that he 
learned very little if anything. Today with his time devoted exclusively to 
one subject, it is felt that far more can be, and has been, achieved. In 
addition, midyear and final examinations have been abolished; instead, 
written or oral examinations, or both, are given as each group finished 
a particular field of concentration. 

The class is divided into eight ten-man groups, each of which is 
subdivided into two groups of five; one ten-man group is engaged in each 
field, rotating through all divisions; one month each is spent on Medicine 
and Surgery at Mercy Hospital, including the Mercy dispensaries. All 
other teaching is carried on in the University Hospital and Dispensary. 
As a result of the small groups, a large amount of individual instruction 
and supervision can be given- 

The Faculty, on whom a far greater burden has fallen than in former 
years, has responded enthusiastically, as have Mr. George Buck, Super- 
Intendant of the University Hospital, and the Sisters of Mercy, of Mercy 
Hospital. Without exception every department has extended itself to the 
utmost to provide every facility to the Senior Class. As in any new 
scheme, weaknesses have been found; many have been eliminated as they 
appeared during the current school year. Some faculty members feel that 
they are not given time to present their subjects properly; others are not 
convinced entirely of the desirability of the new plan. On the whole how- 
ever, it seems safe to say that the curriculum is forward-looking in concept, 
that it has been wholehearted support from the Faculty, and an enthusist'c 
reception by the student body.

Department Of Art As Applied To Medicine 

This department is maintained for the pur- 
pose of supplying pictorial and plastic illus- 
trations for teaching and publication by mem- 
bers of the Staff of the School of Medicine. 

For purposes of portrayal the scientist has at 
his disposal three mediums of illustration. The 
first of these is photography, the second is 
drawing or painting, and the third is modeling, 
molding and casting. For the needs of medicine 
these mediums are in constant demand and the 
Department of Art maintains facilities for 
providing them at all times.

The prctures used in the classroom instruction at the University are in- 
variably made by the department of Art. This department did the original 
research in establishing the prosthetic skin form now universally used on 
prosthetic hands. It also perfected a lithographic technique of producing 
artificial plastic eyes which has eliminated the costly and time consuming 
task of iris disc painting so necessary in the past. All of the personnel of 
the fifteen prosthetic clinics established throughout the United States and 
Canada by the Veterans Administration were trained here.

PHI DELTA EPSILON 


The Delta Epsilon chapter of Phi Delta Epsilon 
was chartered at the University of Maryland in 1906 
just two years after the founding of the fraternity 
at Cornell University by a group of inspired men 
who sought to uphold and maintain the highest stand- 
ards of ethics in the practice of medicine as well 
as to promote the highest scientific, literary and 
educational standards and to develop good fellow- 
ship, equality and unity amongst its members. In 
this spirit the Delta Epsilon chapter has carried on 
and includes in its activities an annual lectureship 
featuring renowned authorities of the medical world 
as guest lecturers, a monthly scientific meeting led 
usually by members of the medical faculty of schools 
other than the University of Maryland the purpose 
being to provide a broader more intelligent outlook 
on many subjects of medical interest and of course 
many opportunities for meetings on a social level 
where lasting bonds of friendship and good fellow- 
ship are established to be maintained long after under 
graduate days.

Beta Alpha Chapter of Nu Sigma Nu, founded 
in 1904, represents only a part of a national organi- 
zation of medical men first organized by William 
Mayo in 1882. Beta Alpha Chapter with 557 active 
members and alumni and 35 pledges is one of 
40 chapters which have a total membership of over 
25,000. 

Under the leadership and guidance of Eugene 
B. Rex, President, and the Alumni Association headed 
by Dr. C. Reid Edwards, the chapter has had a most 
successful year highlighted by a versatile program 
of educational and social activity.

The first two Fridays of the school year Smokers 
were held for the Freshmen so that they might meet 
some of their classmates and instructors. On October 
19th new members were initiated into the Chapter 
and on November 5th, a Sadie Hawkins Day party 
was given for the new members. 

December 17th was a big day for Beta Alpha; — 
the day of its annual Christmas Party for six orphans 
complete with Christmas tree and gifts for the child- 
ren. The day was spent dodging shots from new 
water guns and escaping the blare of Christmas horns. 

The first meeting of the new year launched a 
series of lectures with Dr. John C. Krantz as lead- 
off man. On February 5th Dr. Theodore Woodward 
discussed "Modern Antibiotics" at the sixth annual 
alumni banquet. 


March saw the new officers taking over their 
respective positions and the long awaited formal 
fraternity dance at the Cameo Club bringing the cur- 
tain on another successful year of Nu Sigma Nu 
activities.

Shortly after the turn of the century a young 
group of doctors organized together and under the 
leadership of Dr. Harvey Beck initiated the Zeta 
Chapter of the Phi Beta Pi Fraternity. 

From this beginning the fraternity was active 
around the campus until the Second World War. The 
normal pattern gave way to the accelerated medical 
program and gradually the fraternity became inactive 
in 1942. 

A period of quiescense lasted until October of 
1947 when Dr. Wm. Duffy of the class of 1940 took 
the first step toward reactivation. With the aid of 
Dr. E. Uhlenhuth, Dr. Roderick Shipley, Dr. Will- 
iam Kammer, Dr. Frank Hacktel and Dr. Friedenwald 
plans were made for the reactivation. Four fresh- 
man, William Shea, Harry Knipp, James MacDonald 
and Raymond Clemmens were initiated into the Zeta 
Chapter and once again the Phi Betes were active on 
the campus. From 1947 till the present the fraternity 
has grown to an active membership of thirty four, 
and now occupy the two rooms above the book store 
"across the street". 

During this half century era of strife and tri- 
umphs many men have become a part of this famous 
professional medical fraternity whose sole purpose 
is the betterment of the medical profession by the 
production of superior physicians.

"To be worthy to serve the suffering'' 


Alpha Omega Alpha is a non-secret Medical Honor Society. It is 
composed of (1) regular members consisting of medical men and women 
who as undergraduates have given promise of becoming leaders in their 
profession or who later have attained such leadership, and (2) honorary 
members consisting of physicians who have attained distinction in any 
worthy line of human endeavor, and of persons, whether physicians or not, 
who have gained unusual recognition in fields related to medicine. 

The aims of the Society are the promotion of scholarship and re- 
search in medical schools, the encouragement of a high standard of charac- 
ter and conduct among medical students and graduates, and the recog- 
nition of high attainment in medical science of practice and related fields. 

The most prominent requisite of membership is high scholarship in a 
broad sense — scholarship that is more than a record of high average grades 
and facility in memorizing information. It connotes continuous industry, 
effectiveness in methods of work, facility in correlating facts and an 
intellectual grasp that permits application to new problems. Election to 
this society is not only a recognition of accomplishment as a student, but 
also an insignia of both promise and expectancy of leadership in some phase 
of medicine after graduation.

Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society was founded at University 
of Illinois College of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois, August 25, 1902 by 
William Webster Root, M D., and since that time has enjoyed remarkable 
growth and influence. At present there are fifty six active chapters in the 
United States and Canada. 

Beta chapter of Maryland was installed on December 9, 1949 in a 
ceremony at the Hotel Stafford with Dr. H. C. Byrd, D.Sc., LL.D., Presi- 
dent of the University presiding. The charter was conferred by Dr. Walter 

L. Bierring, M.D., National President, Alpha Omega Alpha, and was ac- 
cepted by Dr. H. Boyd Wylie, M.D., Dean, University of Maryland, 
School of Medicine. The Chapter was installed by Dr. Josiah J. Moore, 

M. D., National Secretary, who presented Keys and Certificates of Member- 
ship to all new initiates. Greetings to the new chapter were extended by 
Dr. Alan M. Chesney, M.D., Dean, the Johns Hopkins University, School of 
Medicine, and an address, "The Hanor Fraternity in Medical Education", 
was given by Dr. H. C. Weiskotten, M.D., Dean, Syracuse University, Col- 
lege of Medicine and Chairman, Council of Medical Education and Hospi- 
tals, A.M.A. 

Charter membership in the Maryland Chapter was conferred upon four- 
teen members of the faculty, five recent graduates, and twelve students in- 
cluding nine members of the senior class, and three members of the junior 
class- To this group will fall the responsibility of organizing the Beta 
Chapter, perpetuation of its membership, and continuation of the high 
ideals for which the Society stands.

Christian Medical Society 


The Christian Medical Society is a nationwide interdenominational 
organization of Christian physicians, interns and medical students with 
a two-fold purpose: (a) to present a corporate witness for Christ to the 
profession at large; and (b) to gain the mutual strength and encouragement 
afforded by meeting together for Bible study and prayer. 

The University of Maryland chapter is but one of twenty-odd groups 
in medical schools and centers throughout the nation. The local group be- 
gan by holding monthly dinner meetings at the YMCA five years ago. A 
year later, the monthly meetings gave way to weekly Bible studies, which 
at present are held from 5:15 to 6:00 each Thursday afternoon in the 
Student Lounge of the Gray Laboratory Building. 

Although membership is limited to medical students and physicians, 
those in allied fields are welcome. The meetings have been attended not 
only by medical students and interns, but also by dental students and nurses. 

At these weekly meetings, the Bible Study has been led by doctors and 
prominent businessmen as well as various ministers. Students of all faiths 
and denominations are welcome. A wide variety of topics have been used, 
and each address is followed by an open discussion in which everyone is 
free to participate. The discussion, however, is always centered upon the 
Bible, which is held to be the inspired word of Cod (II Timothy 3:16), 
and upon Christ, who is presented as the Son of God and a Savior from sin 
for those who accept Him (John 1:12).

The Lady With The Lamp 


MILDRED EILEEN CHRISTOPHER 
Hurlock, Maryland 

Chrissie's witticisms and cheerful per- 
sonality have made her one of the most 
popular girls in school. Collecting cow- 
boy records and swinging the Alleman- 
de-Ho and a Dosey-Doe are her hobbies. 
She enjoys reading everything from Dr. 
Elliot's Harvard Classics to Dr. Kin- 
sey's Report. Chrissie favors the Acci- 
dent Room, but is a "natural" in any 
field of nursing. A few words with her 
will erase a snarl that fairly shouts of 
C. I. distress and broken arches. The 
adage, "Put yourself in his place" comes 
easily to her- So to you, Chrissie, a 
Medal of Merit, for your optimism and 
workable philosophy!

JANE KATHRYN BLUNT 
Centerville, Maryland 

Janie, known to some of us as J.B., 
is that cute little freckled blonde whose 
hilarious laughter keeps up the morale 
of everyone living on the sixth floor of 
the Nurses' Home- We shall never for- 
get Janie's tonsils and toenail, which 
are now rare specimens in the Pathology 
Dept. After graduation, Janie plans to 
join the staff of her alma mater. By 
the way, Janie, are there any more cute 
little girls in Centerville who are in- 
terested in nursing? Best wishes and 
may all of your luck be good! 


Whenever a noble deed is wrought, 

Whenever is spoken a noble thought. 


MILDRED SMITH DUNCAN 
Linville, North Carolina 

Smitty, our only C.I., is a southern 
gal with a gentle voice and a serious 
face. She does her work with confi- 
dence and builds confidence in her co- 
workers. Her efficient work has won 
her the respect and adoration of pa- 
tients and staff. Her fiery temper, not 
too easily aroused, is long-lasting once 
it comes to the surface. After two years 
in the Navy, the floor is still a 'deck' 
and the dining room a 'chow hall'. Plain 
and outspoken in her every manner, she's 
tops any way you look at her. Future: 
Bud, Jr. and Arabia in the fall. 




MARIE BARBARA CORECKl 
Baltimore, Maryland 

If, before receiving your O.R. train- 
ing, you would like to know the duties 
of a scrub nurse, just ask Marie. This 
talkative brunette gave up her secretar- 
ial career to enter the nursing profes- 
sion. She is friendly, neat, vivacious, 
and an efficient nurse as well. If you 
lived on the sixth floor, you would be 
familiar with Marie's musical notes 
coming from the shower q.n. It seems 
as though many of her classmates have 
acquired a liking for Polish foods now, 
especially pastry. In the near future, 
Marie plans to change to "Mrs." Best 
wishes, Marie.

MARIE ELIAZBETH MANN 
Staten Island, New York 

To live with Liz Mann is to live with 
a dynamic force such as has hitherto 
been almost unknown. The girl verit- 
ably, like the proverbial Rice Crispie, 
snaps, crackles and pops. One can al- 
ways rely upon her to do and say the 
properly conventional things in the most 
deliciously personalized and unconven- 
tional manner. I remember one time in- 
deed, when she overturned a sailboat, 
not with muscle, but with sheer joie de 
vivre. My thanks to her for mushroom 
soup at midnight and seemingly inane 
conversations at 6 A.M. May we reap 
together some of the oats we have sown 


DORIS ELIZABETH HICKS 
Sparrows Point, Maryland 

If you ever need any pointers on the 
procedures and practices of night nur- 
ses just ask Doris. Most of her three 
years of training has been spent on 
night duty — more or "Les". How she 
keeps that round face and those rosy 
cheeks on her self-imposed diet of to- 
matoes and tomatoes oniy is the mystery 
of the dietary department. Any future 
plans for Doris begin with Les and end 
with a vine-covered cottage. Her ever- 
lasting smile and out-standing ability in 
Pediatrics have left their imprints and 
will undoubtedly do likewise in the fu- 
ture.

dor in the hospital and noticed a charm- 
ing brunette walking nonchalantly with 
a tray of medicines? Yep, that is Mer- 
vis. Always a smile and a complaint 
for everyone. When reminiscing, we 
can't forget the food Selma bestowed 
on the third floor. The delicious apple 
cake and grapefruit candy. Wonder if 
Selma can cook as well as her mother. 
What about it "Bucky"? Selma plans 
to remain in Baltimore and in the pro- 
fession until she receives her MRS. de- 
gree. Luck and happiness to you, Sel- 
ma! 




INEZ ALVENIA PARKS 
Greensboro, N. C. 

We remdmber blonde hair, blue eyes 
and a gay pleasant smile for everyone. 
We remember a southern accent which 
is anything but the usual slow drawl. 
We remember, "Yes, that's really my 
name, but please, just call me "Beanie". 
We remember her pacing the floor im- 
patiently and muttering hopelessly, 
"Warren, won't you ever get here on 
time?" We remember last Christmas 
when she returned from her vacation in 
North Carolina with a sparkle in her 
eyes that matched the sparkle on the 
third finger of her left hand. But most 
of all, we remember "Beanie" . . . 


And lifts us unawares 

Out of all meaner cares. 



JEANNE ROWE SNYDER 
Pasedena, Maryland 

One reason why gentlemen prefer 
blondes is our Jeanne. Her blonde hair, 
blue eyes and cheerful, sympathetic 
manner are great assets in boosting her 
patients' morales. Although seeming to 
be on the quiet side, she is always to be 
found in the middle of any student ac- 
tivity going on. To prove this, she is 
chairman of the Social Committee for 
the March class of 1950. Being one of 
the best student scrub nurses, she will 
probably always have a place in the 
operating room, but her future plans 
now only involve Bruce. Best of luck 
in the future, Jeanne! 


OCTOBER, 1950 


DOROTHY ANN BARTZ 
Bethesda, Maryland 

We know Dottie as a carefree, easy- 
going person. She is an ardent dog 
lover — Fifi being her favorite. The cas- 
ual onlooker may think her shy, but 
those who know her realize that she has 
her very own sense of humor. She is 
a reliable and capable nurse- Everyone 
has days in the operating room that they 
will never forget — Dottie's was the day 
of her first G.U. scrub. Want to be 
a private G.U. scrub nurse, Dottie? 
Dottie aspires to higher education, and 
who knows? Someday she may have a 
training school of her own. 



Honor to those whose words or deeds 
Thus help us in our doily needs. 


GRACE FLORENCE BASSLER, B.S. 
Fulton, Maryland 

"Craca/' a charming brunette with 
the most expressive brown eyes, came 
to us after spending two years at Col- 
lege Park. There are some people who 
always are having the most unfortunate 
incidents happening to them — and 
"Craca" is one of them. Remember all 
the time you could spend in the Oper- 
ating Room, because you had so few 
classes, Craca? Her efficient manner, 
keen sense of humor, and pleasing per- 
sonality make her well-liked by every- 
one. Besides nursing, "Craca's" future 
includes raising Great Danes. In the 
near future, watch for signs reading, 
"Dogs for sale"! 


EVELYN JOYCE BATES 
Baltimore, Maryland 

A welcome addition to our class, 
Joyce joined us in August, 1949, after 
transferring from Maryland General 
Hospital. Her will to work and easy 
manner have won her many friends and 
a well earned place in the class of '50. 
However, it was not all smooth sailing; 
for with a husband, a six months old 
baby and her housekeeping, Joyce has 
had more than a full time job. Yet 
graduation will mean no vacation for 
her — only another mile stone reached — 
for her ambitions extend to college and 
the Degree of Bachelor of Science. Best 
of luck to a most ambitious young lady.

MARGARET MAY BEEDE 
Youngstown, Ohio 

Combine dork hair and wide-spaced 
green eyes staring into the future, with 
a radiating personality and a will to 
undertake any job at hand with sincer- 
ity and vitality and it is no wonder she 
was our choice for class president. 
Peg's greatest loves are music and phil- 
osophy. Full of fun and energy. Peg 
always has new ideas, and new places to 
go. She enjoys long walks, swimming, 
and has a great admiration for horses 
and riding. From teddy bears to panta- 
loons to wild horseplay to symphonies 
to formals. Yes, Peg is our all around 
sport. 


DOLORES ESMARELDA BLAHUT 
Solley, Maryland 

Behind those sincere blue eyes we 
find merriment and impishness. She is 
a girl we all love to have around, wheth- 
er it's to share her generosity or accept 
her understanding personality. She 
loves books, music and the outdoors. 
When she isn't headed for that bunga- 
low tucked away in the pines, she has 
the hall blocked with furniture from 
her room. The deft ability she displays 
in sporatic room arranging amazes all. 
Her favorite expression is, "Ya know 
what — I'm happy." Full of initiative 
and energy, "Dede" will progress in any 
field she enters. Best of luck to the 
very best.

MARY ALICE DOWE 
Arlington, Virginia 

'There's a chapter in our life called, 
'Mary'," and what a chapter! Mary is 
our sleepy time gal and our mischief 
maker, whom you'll find full of ener- 
gy and spirit (if you catch her awake)- 
Frank and straight to the point, she says 
what she thinks and does what she 
pleases; we never know what to expect 
next — it's usually the unexpected. We'll 
never forget her short, short haircuts, 
those catnaps in class, the brownies her 
mother makes, her strong love for the 
South, her practical (?) jokes, her 
turned up nose, or her high ideals and 
ambitions. 




MARGARET PATRICIA FERGUSON 
Baltimore, Maryland 

I know a Ferguson named Pat. I may 
even venture to say I understand the 
enigmatic mechanisms of her personal- 
ity. One finds, on close inspection, the 
classic "Psychopathia Idiosyncrata" par 
excellence (please note Drs. Kraft-Eb- 
bing). For who would eat spaghetti 
with chopsticks in the small hours of 
the morning for the sole purpose of 
solidifying the oriental and occidental 
cultures? Please don't misunderstand; 
Ferguson per se is the typical, whole- 
some spirited American girl — it's just 
these nomadic, electrical impulses that 
emanate from I know not where, but 
gravitate to Ferguson as did Newton's 
apple to Mother Earth. 


The trenches cold and damp. 

The starved and frozen camp. 



JOAN ELAINE GLEASON 
Baltimore, Maryland 

A native Baltimorean, Joan gradu- 
ated from Catonsville High School in 
'47, after which she took a course in 
Nurses' Aid Training at University Hos- 
pital. From this she decided she wanted 
to be a nurse. Joanie will always re- 
member our probie days back in the 
annex, night duty on 3D, scrubbing for 
Dr. C.R.E., and parties at Sheppard and 
Pratt Hospital during her psychiatric 
affiliation there. She has a devilish, 
teasing manner and always seems to be 
laughing. Darned cute too, with dark 
brown hair and eyes to match. Future: 
General duty nurse. 


MARION GRAHAM, B.S. 

Gainesville, Florida 

Marion, our twinkly-eyed Florida 
cracker, is as enthusiastic and resource- 
ful as a side show barker when plan- 
ning our various social activities and 
whether she goes or not is irrelevant to 
her that is. The cute way she says, 
"No" on the telephone simply drives the 
more ambitious gals crazy- Does Bos- 
ton have more to offer than its outdated 
Harvard accent? Marion swims like 
Williams, dances like Powell, and rides 
the aquaplane like Graham. Needless 
to say, she is an excellent nurse. She 
loves music, concerts and, oh yes! — we 
almost forgot "Stupid, Junior". How 
is that droll piece of felt? 



The wounded from the bottle plain. 
In dreary hospitals of pain. 


JEAN CROTON 
Parksley, Virginia 

Jeannie is a slim, fair-haired lass who 
hails from Virginia. She graduated 
from Parksley High School in '47 and 
came immediately to Maryland to join 
the class of '50. She loves to eat but 
never gains weight which perplexes Dr. 
Townshend no end! Lucky, lucky girl! 
She is our efficient class secretary and 
spends her leisure time selling station- 
ery. Always calm, cool and collected, 
she has a nonchalance that is convin- 
cing. She likes nursing very much and 
claims Pediatrics as her favorite field. 
All in all, she is a true and loyal friend, 
and will never let you down. 




MARY MARGARET GUYMON 
Ingleside, Texas 

Whenever you hear the plaintive 
strains of a cowboy ballad drifting 
down the hall, you can be sure Marge 
Guymon won't be far behind. To hear 
her talk, one would think Texas the only 
worthwhile spot on the globe. Actual- 
ly, she's quite a nurse, and is particu- 
larly interested in the field of psychia- 
try. Her favorite sports are horseback 
riding, swimming . . . and aviation, eh 
Marge? And you just haven't lived un- 
til you see her B-Bop tap steps. By the 
way, what about the transcontinental 
calls and her plans for the future? Well, 
we think you had better ask the General.

ETHEL KIM HOM 
Baltimore, Maryland 

Known as "'Kim"- Her famous last 
words are, "Tm telling you!!" And I'm 
telling you, Kim has a quietly pleasing 
manner about her that makes her choice 
of profession a wise one. She is torn 
between outside interests at Temple Uni- 
versity, Washington College and Johns 
Hopkins. (Wonder what's wrong with 
our own homefront?!!) None of the 
passing class of '50 will ever forget the 
sombre moments in classes abruptly in- 
terrupted with laughter by her dry hum- 
or. She has a pair of Esquire legs, 
raven black hair and gullibility. To all 
around her, Kim spells fascination. Fu- 
ture: Honolulu, Hawaii.

MARGARET VIRGINIA HERBERT, B.S. 
Seat Pleasant, Maryland 

A cheerful smile and the ability to 
take everything in her stride describes 
"Herbie". "Herbie", or Margie as she 
is sometimes called, is a very willing 
and conscientious worker, who has found 
her special field of nursing in pedia- 
trics. Before entering U.H., "Herbie" 
spent two years at College Park in pre- 
nursing. She will long be remembered 
for the night we celebrated becoming 
seniors — and the appendectomy that re- 
sulted afterward! In the three years 
that she has been here, "Herbie" has 
proven herself not only a good and true 
friend, but also an excellent nurse. 



Lo, in f-hot house of misery, 

A lady with a lamp I see 


CAROL MAREDITH HOSFELD, B.S. 
Stoneleigh, Maryland 

As we gaze across the crystal ball, 
we see Madame Zombie. It's really Car- 
ol, the nurse in our class with a friend- 
ly smile and sympathetic voice. We 
can't think of Carol without thinking of 
night duty. Carol came to us after spend- 
ing two years at the University of Mary- 
land. We have come to know her as 
an enthusiastic student, a capable nurse, 
and a loyal friend. In Carol we have 
a talented musician. With her we never 
know what to expect next — it's usually 
the unconventional. Now to add to 
Carol's problems, we've made her treas- 
urer of the senior class. 


RUTH LOUISE HUTCHINSON 
Washington, D.C. 

Ruthie has a very cooperative dis- 
position and is liked by all. Always 
neat and clean in appearance and has 
0 smile for all. She is a conscientious 
nurse who really enjoys her work. She 
likes the winter months — -with lots of 
snow. Her favorite food is salami and 
sweitzer cheese on an onion roll. She is 
always saying, "All righty". . Her fav- 
orite pastime is trying to rhumba and 
she's usually found with Bob. She dis- 
likes night duty and hates to study. Fu- 
ture ambition is marriage to that man 
of hers — Bob. How about it, Ruthie? 




Pass f-hrough the glimmering room. 
And flit from room to room. 


LILA MAE JOHNSON 
Linthicum Heights, Maryland 

Serenity as an appetizer. Then take 
some sincerity and pleasantness, a slight 
pinch of temper, handful of ideal- 
ness, moderate amount of reservedness, 
extensive amiability. Mix well. Add 
a dash of sweetness with just a bit of 
blushing for color. Garnish with charm 
and serve with naiveness. Result: Lila 
Johnson. 



ELEANOR COLTER KELLEY 
Cumberland, Maryland 

"'Mickey'", full of fun and laughter, 
will never be forgotten for her originali- 
ty. She is always heard saying, "Jeeps! 
Am I late! I have to get dressed!" Fav- 
orite pastime is getting the dents out of 
the fender before Bob sees them. She is 
a brownette with green eyes who knows 
her Spanish, and can really rhumba and 
tango; but we're all waiting to see her 
do that Irish jig! For was there ever 
a Kelley, who didn't like green and who 
didn't have just a touch of the Irish in 
her? Luck and happiness to our col- 
leen! 



And slow, os in o dream of bliss. 

The speechless sufferer turns to kiss 


LAURA JANE KIRKWOOD 
Streett, Maryland 

Anyone who has known our ''Kirk'' 
knows that "Hee-haw" of hers which has 
endeared her to us for three loud years- 
She is that tall, sophisticated beauty, 
who habitually will surprise strangers 
with her "spontaneous gaiety". While 
often giving the impression of being 
quite aloof, she is a warm-hearted nurse 
and friend in every sense of the words. 
Her extra-curricular activities include 
twenty-four hour duty in 1037; frequent 
trips to Al's with Stevie for chili con 
came or spaghetti; and cutting Stevie's 
hair almost biweekly. 

Soon; Hawaii with Stevie. 




THERESA MARIE KRZYWICKI 
Nanticoke, Pennsylvania 

Theresa, known to many of us as 
"Dimples", is a girl with a booming 
personality. Always laughing, and my, 
such nice big dimples! She is hardly 
ever seen off duty without Gene. Night 
turns into day when she is on night duty 
with you, and she can cheer anyone up 
with her carefree attitude. No task is 
too big or too small for "Dimples". 
Patients can't help but get well with such 
a cheerful and capable nurse around. 
Marriage is Theresa's future destiny, so 
we wish the best of luck and happiness 
to her always. 


Her shadow, as it falls 

Upon the darkening walls. 



JACQUELINE B. LOAR, B.S. 
Cumberland, Maryland 

"Jackie", — a bundle of vivacity, good 
nature and friendliness. She studied 
Pre-nursing at College Park and plans 
to go into psychiatric nursing in the fu- 
ture. B is her letter — "Bing" (no re- 
lation to Crosby), bubble bath, beauti- 
ful clothes, and books. An avid reader, 
especially of such subjects as, "Why Peo- 
ple Commit Murder", she maintains al- 
most sole support of the Book of the 
Month Club. Her hobby is knitting and 
consists of a tie, two years in the making 
so far. Latest report has it that her 
goal is in sight — only 2,532 more rows! 
Good luck to Cumberland's finest! 


BARBARA LEE LONGEST 
Catonsville, Maryland 

"Nudie" is what most people call her. 
Her favorite pastime is sleeping and 
traveling back and forth from the hos- 
pital to her home, although she can fre- 
quently be found in a certain outboard 
motor boat. Her greatest love is cats, 
even though she is allergic to them. Her 
pet peeve is the trend her "bangs" take, 
especially after wearing a nursery cap- 
Her favorite saying is, "Anybody got a 
butt?" "'Nudie" has a very pleasant per- 
sonality and is a conscientious nurse, 
well-liked by both patients and person- 
nel. Her ambition is to get hitched. 



As if a door in heaven should be 

Opened and fhen closed suddenly. 


NANCY ELIZABETH MEREDITH, B.S. 
Park Hall, Maryland 

Known as "Nanc'\ Likes dancing, 
strawrides and reading — intellectual or 
otherwise. Seen either knitting argyles 
or sleeping. ''None" is a very compete 
person in anything undertaken, and is 
quiet except at about 3 A.M. She smiles 
readily at everyone, never seems to be in 
a hurry, and decorates the room with 
pictures of a certain Army Air Cadet. 
This hazeleyed lassie hails from Park 
Hall (we're told it's in the middle of 
southern Maryland). 

Destination: Vacation from pills and pa- 
ients and "Nudie". But we're sure Nan- 
cy will make her home at University and 
work for her Master's Degree. 




GLORIA ELAINE MULLEN 
Toronto, Canada 

Three years ago, a whirlwind blew in 
and deposited a beautiful, blonde bun- 
dle at U.H. Said bundle turned out to 
be "Glo", who has not yet stopped whir- 
ling. "Moon" has contributed much to 
all who have known her by her striking 
appearance, boundless energy, sincere 
understanding and that bubbling laugh 
having a personality all its own. She 
possesses an invaluable asset in her abil- 
ity to accept unpleasantness, forget it, 
and enjoy life. Besides claiming an en- 
viable scholastic standing, Gloria is an 
expert nurse and truly one whom we 
shall be proud to claim as a fellow grad- 
uate. 


The vision come and went. 

The light shone and was spent. 



BARBARA HARBART MUZZY 
Long Green, Maryland 

Well, if it isn't our Muzzy — grace and 
beauty describe her best. We can't call 
her one of the city gals, because part 
of her heart remains back in the ole 
county town — Long Green, Maryland. 
Always happy with few or no worries- 
Her main extra-curricular activity is 
"Buzz", and I don't mean ringing door- 
bells. Barbara has a great fondness for 
homelife, and we predict for her a happy 
and successful career and marriage. 
With such a future to look forward to, 
who could wish for anything more? 


MARY BARBARA PHELPS 
Linthicum Heights, Maryland 

Barb is one of those jolly, happy-go- 
lucky nurses with a good disposition at 
all times. She has that winning smile 
and hearty laugh, which give her a per- 
sonality all her own. Although she is 
a regular outdoor girl, the joy of her 
life is "Ed". With hardly a serious 
moment and a carefree perspective she 
enjoys her work and makes it enjoy- 
able for her co-workers. Her main in- 
terest at present is to lose the twenty 
pounds which she gained during her three 
years of training. Good luck to you, 
Barbara, in whatever you undertake. 




On England's annols, through the long 
Hereafter of her speech and song. 


MARY JOHN POUPALOS 
Charleston, South Carolina 

"Johnnie'" . . . efficient and reliable; 
a cheerful addition from the ole South 
with her ready smile and calming in- 
fluence by the patient's bedside. The 
"Professor", always ready to lend a help- 
ing hand with those extra classes. Sweet 
brown eyes filled with mischief make 
her one of the best liked girls in our 
class. Her charming personality will al- 
ways be remembered by her many 
friends. Her favorite song is "Carolina 
Moon". Charleston's gain will be our 
loss, but many best wishes for happiness 
and success will always be extended from 
her friends here. Good luck, Johnnie! 




MARGARET ELIZABETH RITTER 
Baltimore, Maryland 

Psggy, who was born in Baltimore, 
graduated from The Notre Dame of 
Maryland Preparatory School. She is a 
brunette, full of fun and laughter, and 
who never tires of talking about clothes. 
She is known to be one of the fashion 
plates of our class. She likes to dance 
and even sings (when in the mood). Her 
favorite saying is, "Oh, Johnnie!" There 
is never a dull moment in the life of 
Peggy, so I leave saying — brown eyes, 
brown curls — what more for a cute girl! 
Best wishes for a bright and shiny fu- 
ture. 


That light its rays shall cast 
From portals of the past. 



MARTHA HOWARD ROLLISON, B.S. 
Hamilton, Virginia 

Martha Rollison, better known to her 
friends as Marty, will always be re- 
membered for her winning smile and 
her pleasing personality. Marty is 
usually found on her way to Hamilton, 
Virginia to see her main interest, Eddie. 
When we hear outbursts of laughter com- 
ing from a group, we know that Marty 
is the center of attraction and has come 
out with one of her hilarious sayings, 
which was really meant in all serious- 
ness. Marty is a very conscientious 
worker, and her wonderful sense of hum- 
or and way of winning friends have 
made her an outstanding nurse. 


MARY LEE SMELSER, B.S. 
Westminster, Maryland 

An attractive blonde, full of laugh- 
ter, describes Mary Lee. One will al- 
ways remember her broad smile through 
moments of sadness or happiness. Her 
main interest, other than nursing, seems 
to be centered around College Park, and 
the Sigma Nu fraternity. Mary Lee's 
favorite outburst will always be, "Do 
you know?!", especially when meeting 
her roommate on the floors. Mary Lee 
will always be remembered for her good 
sense of humor, even through her mom- 
ents of fury. If one knows Mary Lee, 
they will agree, she is an ideal and true 
friend. 



A lady with a lamp shall stand 

In the great history of the land. 


GWENDOLYN LOUISE STATLER 
Chambersburg, Pennsylvania 

Cwenn, our fun loving, peppy, care- 
free girl from Pennsylvania, thinks there 
is no place on earth like^ it. She has 
sparkling brown eyes and hair to match. 
Frequently, she is found reading while 
listening to Beethoven's Symphony Num- 
ber Seven. Other times, she is found 
eating at the nearest restaurant. Gwenn 
is a great lover of sports and dancing. 
She enjoyed psychiatric nursing as well 
as the life at Sheppard- Oh! What 
a life! She plans to travel in the near 
future and then to come back to do 
general duty nursing. 





ANNE STONE, B.S. 

Washington, D.C. 

The hair is blonde with a definite 
white streak. The eyes are big and blue. 
The personality is dynamite. She's our 
own little mood girl. Being one of our 
five year students, she is studying hard 
for that B.S. degree. On the side, she 
dwells in home-spun poetry and South 
African Vildt music. The man of men 
in her life is, "Doug". We hope he 
knows about her weakness for practical 
jokes. There's never a dull moment 
when "Stoney's" feeling her wild oats. 
Here's to "Stoney", may her cup of hap- 
piness never run dry. 



A noble type of good. 
Heroic womanhood. 



MARGARET ANN WARFIELD 
Frederick, Maryland 

NO! You'll never see Maggie alone! 
Gay and bubbling with laughter, she's 
always in the midst of fun and mis- 
chief, takes great pride in calling her- 
self a Yankee, and blushes gracefully 
when told about her beautiful "bedroom 
eyes". She has a deep interest for her 
work and those with whom she works. 
When asked which section of the hospital 
she likes best, she promptly replies, 
"twelfth floor". Her sincere confidence 
and understanding have won her many 
good friends. We'll always remember 
her winning smile, sense of humor, stuff- 
ed animals and popularity. Her future 
at present points to far off Arabia. 


EDITH ELLEN VIEREGK, B.S. 

Tacoma Park, Maryland 

"Edie", our tall, terrific blonde, was 
Gollege Park's loss and our gain in Oc- 
tober, 1947. Having completed her pre- 
nursing course as an outstanding student, 
she maintained that same standard at 
University Hospital. Sincerity, depend- 
ability, and sense of humor made her 
a favorite of our class (and the house 
staff). "Edie" can always be found 
wherever the strains of Brahms or Bee- 
thoven emanate, giving the old masters 
competition with the staccato of her knit- 
ting needles and laughter. Funloving 
and a good sport, she will be part of the 
memory of our student days. Good luck 
— future Mrs. William Wroe. 



Nor even shall o wanting here.

BETTY WATTS 
Gatun, Canal Zone 

Betty graduated from Cristobal High 
School, Panama in '47 and came to the 
states in the summer of that year. She 
likes the states very much, having been 
born here, but she'll never get used to the 
cold weather. She has terrific time try- 
ing to keep worm in the winter- Betty 
is always the same, happy and consid- 
erate. Her interests lie chiefly in sports 
and dancing. The part of training she 
likes most is duty on the surgical wards. 
In the future Betty wants to go back to 
Panama and continue with general duty 
nursing. 




MARGARETTE EDYTHE WEINHOLD 
Baltimore, Maryland 
"The spur of the moment girl" — that's 
our Stevie! Vivacious, gray -eyed, 
brown-haired, rebel, and ready to get 
into anything — except the Nurses' Resi- 
dence. Mac's extra classes have made 
her quite on authority on OB. and "The 
Tower Inn's" cheesburgers, but, "Where 
are my 'turtle shells'?". Foremost of 
all her drives is being an all-around 
efficient R.N., but her extra-curricular 
activities include Hank; editing with 
Mac; Al's chili con came and spaghetti; 
and hair-cutting sprees biweekly. She's 
the sassy pert-nosed version of Florence 
Nightingale, who can outsing Laura only 
on "Dixie". 

Soon; Hawaii with Laura 



The symbols that of yore 
Saint Filomeno bore. 



JANET LORRAINE WHITE 
Salisbury, Maryland 

Jan always aims to please. Really 
does things with those eyes! She is ever 
conscious of others needs and desires. 
Her favorite foods are fried chicken and 
soft crabs. Likes autumn best. Loves 
to dance, swim and write letters- Dis- 
likes long bus rides and hates ta study. 
Always saying, "I haven't got a thing to 
wear!". Her pet diversion is the Naval 
Academy. What's this about a fellow 
named, "Charlie"? Future ambition is 
to find a sure cure for insomnia. She 
plans to do her nursing at Peninsula 
General Hospital in Salisbury. 


PHYLLIS JEANNE ZIMMERMAN, B.S. 
Washington, D.C. 

Last but not least, we have Phyllis, 
who boasts of being one of the tallest 
in our class. Her height is exceded on- 
ly by her pleasing personality, friendly 
smile, and her quiet, conscientious man- 
ner. Her half awake, troubled expres- 
sion at 6 A.M., lets us know how she 
feels about greeting the morning. Phyl- 
lis is a willing worker and is always 
ready with her unconscious sense of hu- 
mor. She enjoyed two years at College 
Park preparing for nursing. Now that 
she's social chairman of our class, Phyl- 
lis has found that "life has its little 
problems." 




THE BLACK FIFTY EXPRESS 



It was with the mixed feelings of any traveller about to undertake 
a new and adventurous journey, that sixty-nine passengers paused to register 
and boarded the two sections of our train in 1947. It might be described 
as an air of anticipation, but there was that touch of uncertainty, and a 
new feeling of strangeness mixed with challenge that made those first few 
miles of the journey so important. 

We became well acquainted with our fellow travellers as we struggled 
up the steep grade of probie-hood. As we looked at the charted course, 
the route seemed long, and we wondered if such a journey could be en- 
dured. But, as the miles passed, we found difficulty only in keeping up 
with them. We busily learned the arts of lettering and speaking, became 
dictionaries of Anatomy, and curiously peeked at anything we could get 
under a microscope. 

Then came the first stop — that shining hour, when we stood on the 
platform with lighted candles pledging ourselves to our profession and 
proudly climbed back aboard, taking our places as part of the student 
body. Now occupying a better car, we were able to see more of the 
scenery and began to feel a deeper appreciation for the elements around us. 
Relief and night duty had been heretofore unexplored; but now they belong- 
ed to us, and we alternated vigils during these hours for most of the re- 
maining journey. 

Now near the end of our first year journey, we found ourselves divided 
into groups, sidetracking to the various specialties- We found ourselves 
as cooks, paging Apple Brown Betty, gaining pounds on milk shakes and 
fixing the most appealing trays? ? ? 








We faced Obstetrics with cord sets in our pockets, one ear out of 
our scrub caps, listening for that first sound of a B.O.A., teaching new 
mothers, and walking endless corridors to and from the ''angel factory". 

Next stop — Towson, where we spent a three month sojourn at Sheppard 
Pratt Hospital, spiced with those home-made cream puffs, long hikes in the 
country, and that one late leave 'til midnight each week. We wondered 
at times who should be locked up and occasionally locked up the wrong 
people. 

In Pediatrics we tried our maternal skills with those lullabyes and 
stories(?); and in vain we tried to keep Reggie from eating everything in 
sight. We'll never forget those homemade cokes, those sleepy nights in the 
Premie and little Roberta — 

We were confronted with a real challenge in the operating room, being 
placed on a pedestal (but only in accordance with our height). We wit- 
nessed the thunder and calm of a storm, of which we were an integral part, 
scrubbing buckets and walls, and staying spotless and perfect. Yes, we 
witnessed real drama, both comeday and tragedy — and we loved every min- 
ute of it. 

We were not only sidetracked for work, however. For early in our 
trip we decided that all work and no play would make '“'50" a dull class. 
So, with this in mind, the "Black 50" set out to uphold its name in ex- 
tracurricular activities. We partied after hours, celebrating anything and 
everything, and were well represented in every activity — from the small 
informal dances in the nurses' dining room to the Xmas and spring formals. 
Our anniversaries, however, deserve very special mention for they were 
probably celebrated the most extravagantly. 

Our trip now almost ended, seems short but full of memories dear 
to each of the passengers on "The Black Fifty Express". 












Last Will and Testament 


We, the graduating class of 1950, being of questionable nninds and 
using no judgment, do hereby bequeath and bestow to the proletariat; these 
our most treasured possessions in this our last will and testament.

enough to catch him.

"Nudie" Longest — leaves her allergy to cats to the future 
classes. 

Nancy Meredith — wills a forever sleeping roommate to

both ounces.

disposition to anyone "blah" enough to need it.

use them as well as she has in the past three years.

White Casket Co.'s telephone number to future prac- 
tical jokers. 

The third floor of the Nurses' Home leaves "Homer", the 
only man who has spent three solid years in the 
Nurses' Home to anyone who appreciates having a 
man around the house. 

To our Lecturers and Instructors — we leave more wide 
awake students. 

To U.H. — we leave our old uniforms for new bedpan 
covers. 

To Miss Gipe — we leave our hopes that all her fondest 
ambitions for the furtherance of the school may soon be 
a reality. 

To Mr. Buck — we leave our thanks and appreciaton for 
all that he has done in the short time he has been 
with us. 


So it is, with the fondest of memories and many smiles we leave, 
convinced that we were most fortunate to be members of the infamous class 
of 1950.
